(Dec 21, 2009)
My cousin Ya'acov's secret ambition is to go unnoticed. He dreams of becoming a monk, a recluse.
One summer, towards the end of his high school days, he fulfills his monastic ambitions.
He drops out of school and becomes a shepherd
on a forsaken farm in southern Mount Hebron.
The mystery and magic that he discovers in the mountains aren't exactly greeted with enthusiasm by his family.
This rebellious son's high jinks draw them into
family quarrels that expose fresh, surprising points of view on themes such as love, war,
and the beard my cousin has decided to grow.
Grandma, for example, has turned out to be an admirer of Joan of Arc, although she supports draft-dodging.
Uncle Shmulik sees quarrelling as just another form of love.
My brother Yehuda thinks that life gives you the most when you expect the least.
This is a docu-comedy with a hint of tragedy;
a family story about one individual's attempt
to find his own path and independence,
even when those around him think differently.
