Narrative Feature, Israel, 2019. Directed by Jorge Weller.
When the absent-minded widow Tami accidentally hits 70-year-old widower Beno with her car, the last thing on her mind is love and romance. The minor car accident results in an unlikely Israeli love story between a widow in her 60s and a widower in his 70s. They rekindle their lust for life despite their contrasting personalities and their shared emotional hurdle of having to come to terms with the loss of a long-time spouse.
