As Yoni chants the story of Noah’s Ark in preparation for his Bar Mitzvah, his autistic older brother, Tomer, unexpectedly returns home, forcing the entire family to cope with his presence. Their mother is a gifted day care director in a troubled marriage to a crop duster too stoned to fly. Mabul garnered awards in Haifa and Berlin.
