In this charming romantic comedy, two mismatched seniors find love when circumstances conspire to bring them together. Tammy, a 64-year-old widow, is dealing with the memory of her loving late husband. Beno is a 70-year-old sarcastic lone wolf widower. From their first encounter when Tammy hits Beno with her car, their emotional, humorous and engaging interactions are captivating. Can their budding relationship survive the scrutiny of their children and interfering neighbours? A heartfelt film starring Israeli film icons Nitza Shaul and Yehuda Barkan. Shlomo Bar-Aba gives a delightful performance as Tammy’s late husband, who refuses to let her go in a cinematic tribute to Bruno Barreto‘s Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands.
