A video produced by Minhal Hahasbara and the National Council for Prevention of Accidents to promote road traffic safety.
Some 17 thousand traffic collisions are reported in Israel each year. This short film tells the story of one of them. Dani hurries in his car on his way to a romantic date; Shmulick races his bicycle from school to the soccer field; and Mr. and Mrs. Leibowitz (Tamara Robbins and Menachem Binyamini) return home on foot from shopping. The protagonists stories tragically collide on the road and are told by the journalist who had reported the accident (Shlomo Bar Shavit).
(Director: Adam Goldberg; cinematographer: Marko Yakovlevich; actors: Yaakov Arkon, Miriam Kapouano, and children of Tel Aviv Municipalitys Culture Center for Youth)
