Wasserman: The Rain Man

Narrative | 2005 | 58 min.
Directed by: Idit Shehori

A seventy-three year old farmer, Wasserman, swore never to pray again, blaming God for his family's annihilation during the Holocaust. But in serious debt and suffering from the effects of a devastating draught, he needs help. The only way his religious neighbors will come to his aid is if he agrees to join them in the synagogue for a communal prayer. Now Wasserman has to to decide between the wishes of the community, his two daughters and a grandson as well as his financial need, and his conflict with the God who stole his family from him.
