Shmuel Ash takes a job as a companion to the elderly Gershom Wald. The two men debate Jesus's humanity and the meaning of Judas Iscariot’s betrayal - the subject of Shmuel's thesis. Things become complicated when Shmuel falls in love with Wald's widowed daughter-in-law, Atalia. In this gentle and insightful work, veteran filmmaker Dan Wolman presents a screen adaptation to Amos Oz’s best-selling novel. A tangle of relationships that touches upon the roots of anti-Semitism, the origins of the Jewish-Arab conflict, and the complex reality in Israel.
