Le Voyage du directeur des ressources humaines, by Eran Riklis (104’)
Based on the story by A.B. Yehosua
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 didn’t even know but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager fights to regain his company’s reputation – and possibly his own humanity.
