95 year old Fira is not only a Holocaust survivor; she is also filmmaker Noa Maiman?s grandmother and the adopted grandmother of 4 year old Firita. Through Fira?s incredible story we get to know her complicated and touching past ? and her intricate and poignant present. She and her family were able to escape a blazing Europe with the help of a kind Polish woman. And for the past 12 years Fira has been dependent on the kindness of Firita?s mother, Magna, who is her caretaker. Two entwined story lines meet in this moving film as Fira?s Holocaust past and Firita, who embodies the future, converge in modern day Israel.

I find this very strange... A holocaust story, linked also to modern Israel and I'm getting a message from the site: "Sorry, we have not been given the rights to stream this film in your area." Why would that be?
