When the mourning over their son ends, a return to routine seems to be in order for Vicky, while her husband, Eyal, opts for a total abdication of routine; he steals his dead son’s bag of medical marijuana and proceeds to get high with his stoner neighbor.

As the world refuses to accommodate Vicky and Eyal’s sensitivities during their time of bereavement, the two parents act in outlandish ways as they attempt to regain a sense of control over their lives, finding that despite the most painful losses imaginable, the world stops for no one.

Premiering at Cannes Critics’ Week, and dominating the competition at Jerusalem Film Festival with Best Israeli Feature, Best First Film and Best Script wins, this affecting ‘Israeli Little Miss Sunshine’ has resonated with festival audiences across the globe. Nominated for six 2016 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars), including Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Actor.
