On the verge of his Bar Mitzvah, young Aharon is chosen to carry the Torah on Simchat Torah in this touching and complex portrait of an Israeli family and its working class community. Aharon’s status in the neighborhood is suddenly elevated because of the belief that he who carries the Torah may ask G-d for anything on behalf of others. But as Aharon begins to feel burdened by so many wishes, especially his parents’ conflicting desires, the tension leads to unexpected results.
