A valiant 96-year-old woman, Miriam Weissenstein, fights real estate developers to keep alive the Photo House in Tel Aviv, which holds one million negatives documenting the history of Israel.  Stubborn and opinionated, Weissenstein is also enormously funny, even when bickering with her beloved gay grandson, Ben, who is helping her save her shop.  A heart-warming – and sometimes heart-breaking – documentary of love, courage and compassion.  2012 Ophir (Israeli Oscar) nominee.
