Retirement Party

Haifa Film Festival

Immediately after her retirement, Chanah fell ill diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Her husband, Tuvia, unwilling to accept the fact that his own retirement is approaching, became afraid he might lose his vitality and grow numb with his sick wife... whilst she waits for him to stand by her and provide the sense of security she so badly needs.
In the midst of it all stands their son - the film director - who tries to mend the cracks that threaten the whole family.
The delicate relationships that intertwine are exposed during a period of adjustment, forcing them after 45 years of marriage to try to adapt to their new life in retirement.
