Lina, one of his son's teachers and a Russian immigrant, draws out all sorts of unexpected responses from Yigal. The normally quiet, staid Yigal suddenly becomes spontaneous and romantic. Then reality brings the couple back to earth. Lina's husband is returning from Canada and expecting to take her back with him, even though their marriage is falling apart. Will Lina stay grounded in Israel with the aviophobic Yigal? Or will she fly back to her empty marriage? Keren won an Israeli Academy Award nomination for his performance as Yigal. 7:30 p.m. Jewish Community Center, 5601 South Braeswood.
