After years away, Ariel (Alan Sabbagh) returns to Buenos Aires seeking to reconnect with his father Usher, who founded a charity foundation in Once, the city’s bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel meets Eva (Julieta Zylberberg, Wild Tales). Eva’s independent spirit motivates Ariel to come to grips with the traditions that once divided him and his father and to rethink his own identity. Tenderly, and with a lightness of touch, Ariel lets go of his old expectations and allows himself to be drawn into the center of a vibrant and fascinating community.
