The documentary’s main focus is on Saar Maoz, a gay, HIV-positive Israeli. The directors, Barak and Tomer Heymann, accompany the protagonist in a sensitive and empathetic way, without ever slipping into the maudlin. On the contrary, the film is an homage to life and the family, no matter how you define them.
Following his coming-out as gay, Saar is expelled from the kibbutz by his religious family at the age of 21 and flees to England. There he joins the London Gay Men’s Chorus, which becomes his new family. It is here he blossoms and can be himself.

The film accompanies Saar, now in his early 40s, through his everyday life in London. After over 17 years he decides to draw closer to his family again and travels to Israel. Saar sets off with mixed feelings and hope of reconciliation.
A discussion with the director Tomer Heymann will be held after the Monday Movie, which will be shown in English and Hebrew with English subtitles.
