About the Film

ONE WEEK AND A DAY | שבוע ויום

It is one day after the end of shiva, when an Israeli couple’s ritual mourning for their son must end, when the routine of daily life must resume… but not just yet. Desperate for answers, a grieving father steals his late son’s medical marijuana and hangs out with his estranged neighbor’s son while his wife struggles to return to her daily routine—fighting off school teachers, stray kittens, and dental clinic workers. It all takes place in the span of a single, life-changing day, “Confidently directed and beautifully played.”—Hollywood Reporter. “Puts the ‘high’ in l’chayim.”—Variety.
