Set in Tel Aviv, this intense, melancholy drama focuses on Jonathan, a gangly and romantic gay teenager who faces an early-life crisis when he
finds himself abandoned by his lover. Frustrated by his self-absorbed
mother and horde of pot-head friends who invade his apartment,
Jonathan's passions are rekindled after he befriends Thomas, the
handsome, HIV-positive older son of his upstairs neighbor. Their budding
yet tentative relationship provides the backdrop for this ambitious,
thought-provoking social and sexual drama which touches upon such issues
as AIDS, death, drug abuse, the gay milieu of Tel Aviv and family
dyfunctionalism.

Although the film overreaches, it remains a serious, thought-provoking
gay drama. Amos Gutman, the filmmaker, died of AIDS in 1993 shortly
after the release of this film.

One of the earliest Israeli entries to the Gay Film canon. Historically important.
