Just for Today (TV Series)
Florida PremiereWhen a halfway home for recently released prisoners faces permanent closure, the former prisoners face a dramatic decision — will they be able to integrate back into society or will they be thrown back into their previous lives? The series centers around Anat, a social worker and current manager of the group home, who deals with both the shutting down of her life's work and the reemergence of Niko, her former ward and flame. Set in present-day Tel Aviv and directed by acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Nir Bergman (MJFF 2021 Audience Award-winning film Here We Are), Just for Today is dedicated to a group of people fighting for their place on the fringes of society. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Cannes Series Mania and Winner of the Best International Series at the Zurich Film Festival.
