A Bármicvó fiúk / 2017 / Hungary / 74 min

A coming of age story for two “boys”. They are both preparing for the greatest day of their lives: their Bar Mitzvah. For 13-year old Salom this is a natural event but for the 83- year old Gyuri, it’s a dream 70 years in the making. Through their preparation the boy becomes the teacher and tries to restore the old man's faith and trust.
