“A unique film about a rare rocker. sensitive, delicate and beautiful. It finally breaks the tie in the Documentary Music scene” – Einav Schiff, 102FM.
In the early 2000’s, Journalist and Musician Boaz Goldberg began to document his friend Gabi Abudraham – a dreamy young man from the periphery of Beit She’an, Israel, with an obsession for Elvis, a fascination for mystical teachings and virtuoso musical abilities. The shy Abudraham creates an eccentric character named Charlie Megira, embarking on a stormy musical journey and reaching large stages in the United States. Together with his struggle for worldwide artistic recognition, Abudraham was forced to deal constantly with the inner demons that he tried to silence with the larger than life figure he created. Meanwhile, Goldberg struggles to eliminate his personal demons in order to finish the film, moving along a timeline of nearly two decades and examining what happens when an artist crosses the boundaries he has set for himself.
