Introduced by Ben Peter

At the age of 96, photo shop owner Miriam Weissenstein never imagined that she would be facing a new chapter in her life. But when the shop – her late husband Rudi’s life’s work – was destined for demolition, this opinionated and uncompromising woman knew she needed help. Under the cloud of a family tragedy, a special relationship is forged between Miriam and her grandson, Ben Peter, as they join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives that document Israel’s defining moments. In the process of working together, family bonds are tested and strengthened in ways that neither could anticipate.  

Presented in collaboration with the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest.
