A winner for language learners. The Hebrew used in this short film is simple, unrushed, and often repeated, making it perfect for language learning. As an added bonus, the focus of the story is on universal themes of coming close and letting go rather than the standard Israeli fare of hopelessly complicated situations grinding everyone down to existential grit. This making it eminently rewatchable. -- T. McCurdy, Hebrew Teacher
