This Israeli short film is about a family who goes on a beach holiday, and by chance the husband encounters an old friend.
"Summer Vacation" wastes no time in getting the story going. In the first minute we already see a life threatening incident, and the husband is unexpectedly and surprisingly saved by an old friend he has not met in years. The dynamics between the husband and wife, and between the husband and friend is palpably strong. It takes a bit of brain work before the truth is finally revealed.
The plot is very engaging, it captivated me throughout. It even made me grasp my seat towards the end, hoping my feared scenario does not happen. This is a well made short, and I hope people will have the chance to see it.
