Who doesn’t wonder about the road not taken? But it takes guts and more than a little persistence to go beyond just wondering. In this Ophir-nominated Best Picture, you’ll meet Ronnie, a 60-year-old Israel film projectionist, who after being fired, decides to travel to the U.S. to find Rachel, the long lost love of his youth who is also turning 60. Joining him on his journey, is Myla, a young American documentary filmmaker. As they both embark on overlapping journeys of self-discovery, Ronnie and Myla learn from each other that regrets are a natural part of any life well-lived.
“Who doesn’t want to know what happens when someone goes after their unfulfilled childhood love?”
