The Human Resources Manager

The Human Resources Manager of Jerusalem s largest bakery is in trouble. He is 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, the bakery is accused of indifference, and the HR Manager is sent to the victim s hometown in Romania to make amends. 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. The film was selected as the Israeli entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 83rd Academy Awards.
