The Human Resources Manager

Narrative | 2010 | 103 min.
Directed by: Eran Riklis

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 never even knew, but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager rediscovers his own humanity and his ability to truly care for others.
