  • Uncle Jacob has a fatal lung disease, but smokes 3 packs a day... Sivan (the director), Jacob’s nephew, a heavy smoker himself, recruits the family to help save Jacob’s life, and his own..A sense of self destruction accompanies the family until often it seems it’s in their genes - When Sivan was 12, his father committed suicide after many years of manic depression.

But a few weeks later - Uncle Jacob makes a miraculous comeback, and vows to treasure life. He says now he will initiate a family workshop - the final attempt at quitting as a family. At his hospital bed, nobody will refuse…
