Aharon takes care of his autistic son Uri. When Uri has to move to an institution, father and son run away. But where are they going? And what do they hope to find? Emotional, carefully told story about the dilemma’s of being a parent to a child with a disorder.

Uri is autistic and lives with his single father Aharon. They have a unique understanding, and Aharon patiently loves his son with all his heart. But Uri is an adult now, and his mother thinks it’s time for him to move to a specialized home. Uri doesn’t want to. And Aharon doesn’t want to either. While they’re on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away. Father and son hit the road, taking a cross-country trip through Israel, meeting old friends and strangers.
