Aharon is in his fifties, but above all he is the father of Uri, an autistic teenager. The father and son understand each other because they love each other, but how far can a father go if he really loves his son? Nir Bergman trains his camera on two men, following a magical duet and offering up a poignant melodrama whose reference is Chaplin's The Kid. Here we are is thus an escape film, which opts for permanent inventiveness over overwhelming fatality. With this moving portrait of an autistic man, the filmmaker constructs a narrative that is not without drama and also shows that the best can happen. Surprising, lively, moving, Here we are is a father’s film and a son’s film. And the balance it maintains leads us to a state of joy.

Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as a young adult it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?
