Text to go here. NOODLE is a charming and suspenseful drama in which two people resolve to defeat the barriers of language through empathy and love. Flight attendant Miri agrees to watch the 6 year-old son of her Chinese maid for “just one hour.” However, when the boy’s mother does not return, Miri must decide what to do with the innocent boy who cannot speak a lick of Hebrew. To reunite “Noodle” with his mom, Miri must rise above her fears and sacrifice her own emerging maternal feelings for the young child.
