An engaging family drama that highlights the effects of a father's personality on those closest to him, Ad Soff Halayla is speaking to wider issues of human relationships. Bernard (Yoseph Millo) is a lifetime agnostic, a respectable physician, and a man not given to showing emotion. Bernard marries Ruth (Orna Porath) in Germany, and they later emigrate to Israel. Years go by, and their grown son Giora (Assaf Dayan) is drummed out of the military on false charges. This nearly drives Giora to the brink because he had hoped for a military career, and so in order to survive he manages a bar in Tel Aviv -- and takes to philandering and drinking as well. Bernard's life is in shambles when Ruth tires of their staid existence and leaves to be on her own -- and now both father and son have to iron out the differences that separate them.
