Home Made (Israel, 13 min)
Directed by Shira Meishar
Just as Helena is about to end another dreary day in the restaurant where she works, and return home to celebrate her fiftieth birthday with her husband, a stranger enters and orders a meal… Something about him rekindles Helena’s desire for human warmth and connection. Soon enough the two of them are joined by a neglected little boy whom Helena saves from a street fight outside the restaurant. In this way a fragile fantasy family is built for three people whose alternative lives whisper inside them.
