My Own Telenovela

An immigrant from Argentina, Jorge Weller has built a life for himself in Ra’anana, Israel but constantly yearns for the family he left behind in South America —  His aging father, his older sister Graciela, and his younger sister Clarisa, a zestful, mentally challenged woman of 30. Clarisa’s genuine wisdom shines through her clinically defined mental disability. With an emotional IQ that is far above “normal,” Clarisa’s penetrating insights shed light on Jorge’s struggle and conflicted feelings between his new life and his past.
