Tikkun

Dir. Avishai Sivan | Run time: 120 min | Rating: NR

Haim-Aaron is an ultra-Orthodox religious scholar from Jerusalem whose talent and devotion are envied by all. One evening, following a self-imposed fast, he collapses and loses consciousness. The paramedics announce his death, but his father, refusing to let him go, takes over resuscitation efforts and, beyond all expectations, Haim-Aaron comes back to life. After the accident he suddenly feels a strange awakening in his body and suspects that God is testing him. The film then takes a turn towards the surreal when talking toilet alligators, alley traveling horses and heavy highway smoke show up.
