Documentary.
When El-Ad was small, his mother told him: “Raising you is like raising three kids”. Ever since that moment, he felt guilty for being deaf, making double efforts to be like everyone else. His realization of his difference became even stronger after the tragic death of his mother and the breakdown of his family. El-Ad has started a family of his own, at the center of which is his child, whose mother is El-Ad’s deaf friend Yaeli, and that also includes their deaf friends. The film is his first-person account of the life he has created for himself, and his attempt to show viewers his own version of family and parenthood.
