What's it about? Haim-Aaron is an ultra-Orthodox religious scholar from Jerusalem whose talent and devotion are envied by all. One evening, following a self-imposed fast, he collapses and loses consciousness. The paramedics announce his death, but his father, refusing to let him go, takes over resuscitation efforts and, beyond all expectations, Haim-Aaron comes back to life. After the accident, the scholar feels a strange awakening in his body and suspects that God is testing him. When his father notices these changes in his son's behavior, he tries to forgive him, tormented by the fear that he has crossed God's will when he resuscitated him. Winner of the Special Jury Prize and awarded Special Mention for Cinematography at the **Locarno International Film Festival**. Official Selection at the **Telluride Film Festival**. *"Impressively imaginative and stylish enough to mark its writer/director as a talent to watch."* - Frank Scheck, ***The Hollywood Reporter***
