Seventeen-year-old Asher has always been a troublemaker and terrible student due to his learning differences. A charismatic teacher prompts a fascination in the world of literature, but also forces a conflict with Ashers brash father, who expects him to take over the family scaffolding business.

Accessibility aids thanks to support from Bank Leumi.
