SHOELACES tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy.
Statement from Director Jacob Goldwasser: "Shoelaces" is a special project for me.  As a father of a special needs son, I never felt that the depiction of special needs characters on film rang true.  However, when I saw Nevo Kimchi's work, I was dumbfounded.  He created a special needs character, who was human and real, filled with humor, optimism and charm."  More at https://lvjcc.org/film
