Hanna’s Journey is a romantic comedy that does not avoid the sensitive issues of history and race. It uses honesty, humor, and compassion to make this journey one that every film lover will be glad they experienced. (English, German, and Hebrew with subtitles)
Hanna is a beautiful young German woman traveling to Israel to work with mentally handicapped adults and visit a Holocaust survivor. Her journey has been calculated to impress a board considering her for a position at a huge consulting firm, but what she didn’t plan for was Itay, the handsome young Israeli counselor who becomes her mentor. She also didn’t plan on the elderly female survivor who sees through Hanna’s motives and reveals some startling facts about Hanna’s own past. What began as a brief trip to establish credentials for her prospective employers becomes a journey across cultures and into the very center of her own heart and mind.
