Brief synopsis

Recently widowed Magda has become hardened. She tries to temper her grief and resentment within the self-imposed confines of her sewing room, crafting 'tallits' (prayer shawls) for Jewish boys. Magda just wants to be left alone, but when she reluctantly babysits her vivacious young grandson Adam, he unknowingly empowers her to realise that what she wants isn't actually what she needs.
