Hanna is a beautiful young German woman traveling to Israel to work with cognitively disabled adults and visit a Holocaust survivor. However, this journey isn’t what it seems; it has been carefully planned to impress a board considering her for a position at a huge consulting firm. In other words, it looks good on her resumé. What she didn’t plan for was Itay, the handsome young Israeli counselor who becomes her mentor. She also didn’t expect to come across an elderly female survivor who sees through Hanna’s motives and reveals some startling facts about Hanna’s own past. A brief trip to establish some credentials for her prospective employers becomes a journey across cultures and into the very center of her heart and mind. Hanna’s Journey does not avoid the sensitive issues of history. It uses honesty, humor, and compassion to make this an unforgettable journey. –Cleveland International Film Festival
