At the age of 96, Miriam Weissenstein never imagined that she would be facing a new chapter in her life. When “The Photo House” - her late husband’s life’s work - was destined for demolition, she knew she needed help. A special relationship is forged between Miriam and her grandson, Ben, as they join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives that document Israel’s defining moments. Despite the generation gap, Ben and Miriam embark on a heart-wrenching, humorous, and touching journey together.
