A heart warming story...
29 September 2002 | by DolphinBoySee all my reviews

Abba Ganuv (1988), "Cool Dad" in a loose translation, is the heart warming story of single father "chiko Ben David" a struggling sailor and his only son "Ben".

this story,spreading over 3 sequels, is all about the struggle of a father and his son to stay together in spite of the mother's constant attempts to claim her son back after years of leaving him since he was a baby, in order to find a better life for herself.
