In brief, this wonderful story is about a father and son, who are both Talmudic Studies Scholars, the father somewhat long lost forgotten, and his son the up and coming star in the academic world. When the most coveted scholarly award in the country is announced from the Prime Minister, they call to congratulate the father when the call was meant to go to the son! It's an interesting twist of fate and a journey of family rivalry and relationships.
