Father’s Footsteps

When Felix Maimon relocates his tight-knit Tunisian family from Israel to Paris, he soon falls in with a local Jewish gangster. His misadventures test the allegiance of his eleven-year-old son, Michael. Based on the director’s own childhood, this coming-of-age story portrays a disillusioned son who must change his perception of who is a hero, and a fiercely protective mother struggling to shield her children from the truth.
