The World Belongs
Chaim is 13 and has just passed his bar mitzvah, which makes him a grown up member of the orthodox Jewish community from now on. One of Chaim’s first own decisions is to agree of having us make a portrait film about him. Although filming within a Chassidic environment is a challenge, Chaim and his family invite us to participate in the wonders of a religious every day life. Those little moments, which we later will call the last days of a beautiful childhood.
