In this story, set in Israel, a Southeast Asian immigrant named Joe is hired by a Jewish woman to care for her ailing husband. Over the course of his time there, his kindness has a lasting effect on many of the residents of the apartment building. A moving story of longing for home and community found amid differing cultures.
