Cast & Crew
At first glance, Yigal is a mild-mannered man who maintains a close relationship with his ex-wife and her new husband because of his devotion to his son. He drives a taxi for a living and has a real command of ground travel. However, Yigal harbors a secret fear that stands in the way of his lifelong dream--he yearns to visit Paris but he is petrified of flying. One day while dropping his son off at choir practice, he catches a glimpse of the music teacher, Lina, whose dimpled beauty belies a growing emotional unrest. Not having dated since his divorce, Yigal proceeds in small steps, even when Lina discloses that she and her physician husband will soon emigrate to Canada. Yigal insists he wants nothing more than friendship, and the two begin a tentative emotional dance with one another.
