The Flood | 2010

Everything is complicated in Yoni’s life. He’s almost 13, intellectually gifted, but physically underdeveloped. Yoni struggles daily to grow before his upcoming Bar Mitzvah. He sells homework to secretly buy a body building wonder powder, which, to date, has achieved nothing. His new classmates, a year older and two heads taller, bully him at every opportunity. His parents barely speak, only communicating with each other, if at all, through Yoni. If all this isn’t enough, only a week before his Bar Mitzvah, his autistic brother, Tomer, returns home home.

At 17, Tomer has been hidden for years in a recently closed institution. His brother’s return shakes not only Yoni’s life, but his entire family’s unstable foundation. It falls to Yoni to deal with a brother he hasn’t seen in 10 years.
