Israeli drama by first-time feature director Haim Tabakman. Aaron Fleishman (Zohar Shtrauss) is an ultra-orthodox Jew and father of four living in Jerusalem who takes over the family kosher butcher shop following the death of his father. His quiet, deeply religious world is turned upside down with the arrival of handsome young Yeshiva student Ezri (Ran Danker), who comes to work in the shop and takes lodgings with Aaron's family. As the two men spend more and more time together, Aaron becomes irresistibly attracted to Ezri, and is forced to question his beliefs and his entire existence.
