El rey del Once

by Daniel Burman Window: San Sebastián

Ariel returns to the Jewish district of Once in Buenos Aires, his native city, to reconnect with his father, Usher. Having arrived there, his father does not show up despite being a much sought after man. Having set up a charity foundation, Usher spends his time taking care of Orthodox believers, offering them clothes, medication and groceries. The warehouse is bustling with helpers and waiting customers. Having little knowledge of Jewish customs, Ariel, is caught in the midst of it all and is suddenly forced to take over from his father. Reluctant at first, he slowly begins to like his new duties and his colleague Eva… A fascinating and subtly humorous journey into Jewish life in Buenos Aires.
