At thirty-seven, Miri is a twice-widowed, El Al flight attendant. Her well-regulated existence is suddenly turned upside down by an abandoned Chinese boy whose migrant-worker mother has been summarily deported from Israel. The film is a touching comic-drama in which two human beings -- as different from each other as Tel Aviv is from Beijing -- accompany each other on a remarkable journey, one that takes them both back to a meaningful life.

Around the World with Fred: Author and historian Fred Rosenbaum will discuss the social issues raised in the film, and their present-day significance for Israel, on Thursday, January 11 at 7 PM PST.

Upon registration, you will receive an order confirmation which will include the Zoom link to the lecture. You will receive a reminder a few minutes before the film begins streaming on Eventive.
