After years away, Ariel returns to Buenos Aires seeking to reconnect with his father Usher, who has founded a charity foundation in Once, the city's bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel also reconnects with his own Jewish roots. Usher staves off a meeting with his son; roping him into a number of small assignments, during the course of which Ariel meets Eva, who volunteers for Usher's charity. Eva’s radiant inner strength and independent spirit inspires Ariel to come to grips with the traditions that once divided him and his father and to rethink his own identity. Tenderly, and with a lightness of touch, Ariel lets go of his old expectations and allows himself to be drawn into the center of a vibrant and fascinating community.
