Screen shot 2017 08 21 at 1.06.22 pm

The story of an unlikely friendship between a Holocaust survivor and a young African American boy who meet at the park on an ordinary afternoon. The kid is waiting for his Mom to pick him up from school, but on that day she doesn’t show up, and his phone dies. The Holocaust survivor notices that the kid has been waiting for a while. He asks him if everything is ok. The kid responds that he doesn’t know what happened to his mom. She is late, and his phone is out of battery. The survivor offers his phone so he can call his mother. The kid immediately notices a number on the old man’s arm. He thinks to himself, “that’s a boring tattoo.” The kid calls his mother and finds out that she got into a car accident, and she will be delayed in picking him up. The survivor stays with the boy until the mother shows up. The kid notices the number tattooed on the survivor’s arm, which leads to a whole conversation about the survivor’s past which includes a dramatic flashback to how he survived. An emotional connection is made between the Holocaust survivor and the African American kid, and a lesson in history is shared between the two. The mother arrives to the park, and the survivor’s son comes to the park looking for his Dad because it is unusual for the old man to stay at the park for so long. The four of them share a warm moment. We learn that each one of us indeed, has a number…
