In this heartwarming family comedy, an elderly boxing coach, known for his generosity but stubbornness, finds it easy to connect with everyone except his own son. Their strained relationship has resulted in years of silence, to the point where the old man has never even met his grandson, who moved to Israel with his father and adopted an Orthodox Jewish lifestyle. However, when the old man's wife unexpectedly passes away, the family is brought back together for her funeral. As they sit shiva and mourn for a week, they embark on a journey of rediscovery, healing, and understanding.

"Thanks to a clever blend of comedy and drama, All About the Levkoviches is one of the rare movies that offer a little bit for everyone. The story, written by Balint Csaba and director Breier himself, is captivating and educational, offering a great insight into the life of the Jewish community in Hungary, and the characters are definitely memorable." - Bence Gaal, Reporter Budapest
