After years away, Ariel (Alan Sabbagh) returns to Buenos Aires seeking to reconnect with his father Usher, who founded a charity foundation in Once, the city's bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel meets Eva (Julieta Zylberberg, Wild Tales). Eva's independent spirit motivates Ariel to come to grips with the traditions that once divided him and his father.Written by

A Little Story That Needs to Be a Little Longer
Ariel is semi-estranged from his abrupt and somewhat eccentric father. His father (Usher) lives in the Jewish section of Buenos Aires, while Ariel - living a more secular life - makes his home in New York City.
Ariel has a girlfriend he's serious about and he wants her to meet dad, so the plan is to fly down to Argentina and everybody can meet everybody.
Which is not what happens.
I loved the fact that nobody in this movie looks like a movie star and Buenos Aires isn't looking all that great, either.
I'm not even sure how many people caught on film are actually actors.
Real people, in a real place, and a little story about a guy who comes home again and starts to wonder why he left.
In the end, a sweet-tempered and amusing story - but a few things need explaining that aren't explained very well.
Just a few more minutes to explain Ariel's sudden change in mood.
