Tiger Within

April 18 @ 7:30 pm - April 22 @ 11:59 pm EDT


A young punk who thinks she knows it all. An old man who knows he doesn’t. They strike up a conversation, it becomes life-changing. A deepening knowledge occurs as they walk the streets of LA.

He is a Holocaust survivor; she a massage-parlorworker on the run and a Holocaust denier, though he doesn’t hold any of that against her.

Newcomer 14-year old Margot Josefsohn plays angry but stunningly naïve Casey, living from hand to mouth on the streets of LA fending off the frightening advances of men, having nowhere to go. She trusts no one. Samuel, played by the sublime (multiple Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner) trusts only a few.

She tells him she hates Jews, he asks her if she needs a place to stay.

The two form an unexpected friendship, which gradually blossoms into a new family unit – him providing her the support and guidance that was lacking in her life, and her offering him the glimpse of the fatherhood that was torn from him many years prior.

Year: 2020 | Runtime: 98 minutes | Language: English | Country: United States | Director: Rafal Zielinski
