Digital Gym Cinema says
After Eyal and his wife, Vicky, finish sitting Shiva after the death of their son, they find that returning to their daily routine is a stranger ordeal than either of them could have ever imagined in this thoughtful, often funny, and heartwarming meditation on loss and moving forward.

As Eyal finishes the traditional Jewish week of mourning for his late son, his wife Vicky urges him to return to their routine -- but just because the shiva has ended doesn’t mean it’s life as usual. Each coping in their own way, Eyal and Vicky both attempt to regain a sense of control over their future, as they struggle to discover that there are still things in life worth living for. Asaph Polonsky’s debut feature ONE WEEK AND A DAY provides a nuanced perspective on loss that is humorous, touching, and above all else, life affirming.
