Do the values that we got from our parents define who we are?
This is the story of a hard-working family in an Israeli suburb in the seventies.
The father cannot deal with problems at home and escapes to alcohol and sex. The mother tries to keep the family together at any price but does not acknowledge her kids’ feelings. Each parent uses their kids to their advantage while giving them responsibilities they cannot hold. The kids try to imitate their parent’s behavior in order to survive.
We follow the family’s reality from the kids’ point of view, the lays and manipulation of the adults, the messages thy deliver to their children, those that will make them how they are.
Catching the mouse, isn’t always the same.
