A jaded Holocaust survivor who has renounced his faith, Avraham (Makram Khoury) resents the piety of his middle-aged son Yehuda (Zohar Strauss), a devout Hassidic rapper. When the aging Avraham decides to return to his native Greece to find the man who offered shelter and taught him magic during WWII, he is compelled to bring Yehuda as his guardian. Arriving in Greece, father and son are forced to confront their prickly relationship with the help of a kindhearted prostitute, Maria (Ariane Labed). So begins a cross-cultural, cross-generational road trip as these richly conceived characters search for absolution and reconciliation.
