Berlin Yuppy “Hanna Eggert” (Karoline Schuch) cynically takes a career-advancing assignment in Tel Aviv which turns her well-ordered life inside out.
By opening herself up to both past and present, Hanna’s future possibilities take on whole new dimensions.
Inspired by a novel by Theresa Bäuerlein, director Julia von Heinz (collaborating with screenwriter John Quester) has crafted a beautiful film with great resonance. (JLH: 4.5/5)

Bottom Photo: When Hanna goes to meet “her survivor” for the first time, she is clearly expecting someone old and piteous, someone who will burden her with tragic stories laced with self-pity. What a surprise, then, to find herself ushered into the apartment of “Gertraud Nussbaum” (Lia Koenig).
