The director uses his camera to explore, for the first time, the complicated relationship between his father, his special needs brother and himself.

Benny Haneman the director takes up his camera to explore the triangle of love, hope, despair, jealousy, loyalty and trust that exists between him, his father and his older brother Gidi, who has a complex combination of special needs. For the first time, Haneman comes face to face with the fact that it is his childhood perception of his brother that informs their relationship today, as adults. Using his camera and a rich variety of archival footage shot by his father since Gidi’s birth, he creates a safe space in which the father and two brothers can eloquently and intelligently express what they have been going through, over the years.
