This is a story of fatherhood.
Ovadia is the strongest and most violent doorman of Tel Aviv night clubs. He has no fear of anything and has never lost a fight. His biggest dream is to become a father – he and his wife Rachel have been trying to get pregnant for almost five years.
A small time gangster named Shalom Rozental sees a great potential in Ovadia. Ovadia sees this as great option to start an expensive treatment for his wife. As soon as Rachel gets pregnant, he decides to stop working for Shalom.
It’s not that easy.
Nominated for a record-breaking 12 Ophirs at Israel’s Academy Awards, and the winner of the Best Actor and Best Editor awards, Our Father has screened at festivals all over the world.
