Sweet Mud

On a kibbutz in southern Israel in the 1970's, Dvir Avni (12) realizes that his mother, Miri, is mentally ill. It is the year of his Bar Mitzvah, and in a series of sometimes funny, sometimes frightening tasks, Dvir and his classmates have to prove their ability to live up to the social standards of the Kibbutz In this closed, unique society, bound by rigid rules, Dvir navigates between the kibbutz motto of equality and the stinging reality that his mother has, in effect, been abandoned by their collective community. http://www.imdb.com/video/hulu/vi3597310233/
