In Jerusalem's orthodox neighborhoods, it is Succoth, seven days celebrating life's essentials in a sukkot, a temporary shack of both deprivation and hospitality. A devout couple, Moshe and Mali, married nearly five years and childless, are broke and praying for a miracle. Suddenly, miracles abound: a friend finds Moshe a sukkot he says is abandoned, Moshe is the beneficiary of local charitable fundraising, and two escaped convicts arrive on Moshe and Mali's doorstep in time to be their ushpizin - their guests. Inspiring, heartwarming and uplifting, this critically acclaimed film has universal appeal. Starring Shuli Rand ("Marco Polo: The Missing Chapter," "Chayim Al-Pi Agfa, Ha-"). Hebrew Language Film with English Subtitles.
