Twenty years after a car accident, for which he was held responsible, the legendary tar (lute) player Yosef Tawila is running a bar in northern Israel. The son of Avram, his bandmate, best friend, and another survivor from the crash, arrives with the news that his father is dying. He brings notations for The Weeping Springtime Symphony, a piece Yosef and Avram worked on together but never played. Yosef decides to reunite the remaining members of the band to grant his dying friend’s final wish—and perhaps to heal his own tortured soul. This is a riveting drama featuring outstanding Mizrahi music. The stellar cast includes Uri Gavriel and Dudu Tassa (who was the subject of last year's NYJFF hit Iraq n Roll).
