Synopsis

Rivka Michaeli is a cultural legend in Israel and one of the few artists who speak out against the government. 83-year-old Michaeli travels to America where her two children have been living for the past twenty years; only there does she get to play the roles of mother and grandmother. Whilst in Israel, Michaeli is considered a traitor for her political views and is an outcast due to her fearless statements. In America, she emerges as a devout and loving Zionist whose soul is attached to her country. The reunion forces Michaeli and her relatives to confront the price for the choice they have made to live far away, with the ongoing pain of missing out and the feeling of absence. It is an emotional reckoning that takes Rivka Michaeli across many inner bridges, between family and the country she loves, between past and future, and between despair and the constant hope within her.
