Almost everything in Eli's life, a 15 years old boy with an eating disorder, is on the brink of catastrophe. He lives in a seedy neighborhood with his mother Sima and her father Yefet, two ex-junkies obsessed with living a "normative" life. His alcoholic father is an unemployed artist and a street philosopher, an eccentric character in a rough environment. In this impulsive and violent world, nothing stays in its natural dimensions, and Eli's desperate efforts to unite his struggling family spin out of control, when a minor family dispute erupts into a cataclysmic disaster and everyone pays the ultimate price.Written by

Wow, this reviewer must have been on their phone or something through this film 🙄
I nearly didn't watch it because that useless review, and I'm so glad I did!
This kid was phenomenal in this very powerful drama, based on him trying to get his father back with his (recovering) drug addict mother.
She has an ex convict boyfriend but still has a private love/hate relationship with her ex (the dad).
The kid is a mummies boy, adores her as she does him. But he's a good kid and very mature for his age.
There was NOTHING shocking until the last 20 minutes, which completely debunks that stupid review above. And when the heavier stuff happened it still wasn't 'that' bad.
The end scene was very simple and summed up the entire movie with 1 simple scene, NOT laughable in any way shape or form.
I give it an 8/10 as the acting and directing was excellent, but rated in 9 to balance numbnuts review up there 👆
