Can a 5-year-old boy be a literary genius?

A teacher becomes at first enchanted, and then ultimately consumed by the poetic genius of one of her students, a 5-year-old prodigy who paces the floor and spouts cryptic poetry whenever the inspiration takes him. The humdrum existence of the teacher, an aspiring poet herself, takes a revitalizing but secretive turn when her maternal interest in protecting this strange child conflicts with the personal advantages she finds in exploiting him. Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid  weaves an increasingly dark tale, as the boy becomes both a symbol and a pawn for a circle of adults in search of meaning in their own lives.
