A CHILDRENS SONG
Heartwarming nostalgiaWhen two students competing for a music scholarship discover that their original compositions are based on a single family song, both become determined to prove ownership, leading them to uncover the long lost true origin of the melody: a story of salvation and hope when over 20,000+ Jews emigrated to Shanghai during WWII.

THE LAST MENTSCH
The cost of forgetting the past the power of remembering itWithout family, a synagogue or a single Jewish friend, Marcus, a hardened Holocaust survivor has so effectively created a new identity that, when faced with his own mortality, the rabbis refuse his appeal to be buried in a Jewish cemetery in Cologne. Determined to return to his birthplace and establish his ancestry, he enlists the help of a young Turkish woman with a troubled history of her own. The unlikely duo sets out on a journey that will irrevocably change them both.
