103 minutes, A film by Eran Riklis
The Human Resources Manager of Jerusalem’s largest bakery is in trouble. He’s 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 and the bakery is accused of inhumanity and indifference, the HR Manager is sent on a mission to make things right.

As the facts unfold he embarks on a complex journey, beginning in the mystical streets of Jerusalem and continuing in frozen Romania. The Manager finds himself leading an awkward convoy to the dead woman’s village including her rebellious son, a pesky journalist determined to ruin him, a quirky consul, an old veteran driver and a coffin. Far from home, on a mission to honor a woman he didn’t even know but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager rediscovers his own humanity and his ability to truly care for human resources.
