Reuven, a grumpy middle-aged car mechanic, unexpectedly finds himself responsible for his adult special-needs son, Gadi, after the untimely death of his ex-wife. Having abandoned the family years before, Reuven now gets another opportunity at parenthood. Reluctant at first, he soon learns that Gadi has much more to offer than he’d ever imagined. Shoelaces is a funny and poignant tale of love, loss, and second chances that is sure to tug on some heartstrings as it explores the challenging dynamics of the parent-child relationship.
