Overview

Both a sharp comedy and a poignant tale of mourning from Israel, One Week and a Day follows a grieving couple, Eyal and Vicky, as they search for solace and security—in themselves and in their community—after sitting shiva for their deceased son.

While Vicky tackles mundane tasks and attempts to return to work as a teacher, Eyal (played with impeccable timing by Shai Avivi) takes another tack toward healing. Distracting himself from reality, Eyal steals medical cannabis from the hospice where his son spent his dying days to get high with his estranged neighbor’s son, a former friend of his own. As the unlikely duo embark on a series of misadventures, writer-director Asaph Polonsky crafts an implicit. deeply empathetic message about coming to terms with tragedy.
