Synopsis

Sarah was born in Yemen 100 years ago. Her husband and four sons died, and she stayed with her six daughters. Despite all, Grandma is not a survivor – she lives life full of meaning and humor. Her pliers shaped hands take care of the garden, the cats, and cooking. Every year she goes to the memorial her son, who was killed in the War. But this year Sarah's health has deteriorated, and her daughters refuse to take her to Jerusalem. Grandma fights with all her strength to be there. Will she come this year as always to her son's memorial?
