Synopsis: Ben is strange: he walks around with gloves and is always carrying shopping bags in both hands. He meets Tamar, who is intrigued by his secret. Slowly, they become friends. Ben doesn’t want anyone to pity him. His way of dealing with his pain is through his imagination, zany humour and laughter. “Ben’s Biography” deals with the very sensitive subject of child abuse. Sounds grim? It’s not! The film is moving and unusually funny.
