Hanukkah bless­ings abound when Edgar, a lonely taxi driver, dis­cov­ers a lost ham­ster in the back of his cab and finds in it an un­likely friend. Softly fall­ing snow and the warm can­dle­light of the meno­rah paint a tran­quil pic­ture; Edgar opens his heart, shar­ing trea­sured mem­o­ries of his home in Tel Aviv, Is­rael, while search­ing for the miss­ing pet’s owner. This is a charm­ing hol­i­day tale about fam­ily, friend­ship, joy, and grat­i­tude.
