Synopsis

Ravit spends all of her time spreading her love wherever it is needed. During the day she cooks for hundreds of Tel Aviv's homeless. In the evenings she hugs abandoned babies in the birthing ward. Without human touch and the warmth of a hug, the abandoned babies won't develop properly and can even die. Ravit always wanted children of her own, but life dictated otherwise. As she turns 50, she decides that she too wants to be on love's receiving end, but that may prove to be a lot harder to find.

  • We were unanimously moved and impressed by Maya Tiberman and Kineret Hay-Gillor's Alone Together...We feel it is important to tell stories of people like Ravit who truly give of themselves and make a small corner of the world a better place. Tiberman and Hay-Gillor created an incredibly intimate portrait of Ravit, her desires and her struggles. Their devotion to their subject, the close bond they clearly formed with her, and the overall strength of their filmmaking was evident in the end result of this film. We are very happy to present them both with the David Stein Award at the 2021 TJFF.
    Toronto Jewish Film Festival Jury's statement
  • It is impossible to be left unmoved by this tender, honest and beautifully rendered portrait of an amazing woman. One of the best documentaries of the year.
