Synopsis

The Human Resources Manager of Jerusalem's largest bakery is in trouble. He is separated from his wife, distanced from his daughter, and stuck in a job he hates. When one of his employees, a foreign worker, is killed in a suicide bombing, the bakery is accused of indifference, and the HR Manager is sent to the victim's hometown in Romania to make amends. Far from home, on a mission to honor a woman he didn't even know but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager fights to regain his company's reputation - and possibly his own humanity.

When Tami, her youngest daughter, is accused of seducing some local boys, Rachel is forced to make a deadly decision. Only the new man in Rachel's life can show her that living as an outcast is not as bad as it seems.

There he meets Simon, a swimming instructor in turmoil over his imminent divorce. Simon agrees to help Bilal, hoping to win back the love of his wife, who does volunteer work helping immigrants.

Silviu has only two weeks left before his release from a hostile juvenile detention center. But when his mother, who abandoned him long ago, returns to take his younger brother away - a brother Silviu raised like a son – those two weeks become an eternity. While his outcries for help fall on deaf ears, he finds himself mercilessly taunted and harassed by the other inmates. And just as Silviu's frustration evolves into full-throttled aggression, he is introduced to a beautiful social worker that he can only dream of being close to. Faced with a slew of conflicting emotions and wild with desperation, Silviu is driven to a surprising act of defiance as he makes a last grasp for freedom.

Jeff in Seattle - Customer Review
Excellent film about an overworked Human Resource Manager feeling stuck in a mundane job, finds his soul bringing the body of an employee back home in Romania. A little road trip, a little fish-out-of-water, this film is a winner. Anyone interested in a ride on an APC?? I'm in!
