Restoration (Boker Tov Adon Fidelman)
Directed by: Yossi Madmoni
70 year old Yaakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabai, The Band's Visit) hangs on with all his might to the antique restoration workshop which has been his life's work. After his long-time business partner passes away, Fidelman rejects his son Noah's idea to close the business and build an apartment complex on the site. He believes that with the help of his new apprentice Anton, he'll find a way to save his workshop, his world and his solitary way of life. When Anton falls in love with Hava, Noah's pregnant wife, the two young men compete not only over a father, but also over a woman and the baby she carries.

“'Restoration' is a tightly focused film, both in its examination of family relationships and its setting in a rapidly disappearing south Tel Aviv of old-time craftsmen in shabby shops."
--Tom Tugend, The Jewish Journal
"The story feels so real that one can imagine it continuing after the film is over."
-- Hollywood Reporter
