Saul & Grace
FEATURE FILM - PACKAGING STAGE
In the end, who will be there for you?
Saul, an elderly Jewish man living in Israel, never imagined spending the final months of his life being cared for by Grace, a young Filipino woman. Having let her own ailing father behind to care for a stranger, Grace doesn’t allow Saul's resistance to keep them from forming a connection. In their small world, constructed out of necessity, Grace is determined to make their relationship more than a means to an end.
