"Highly appealing performances by tyro teen leads make for a noirish, enjoyable adventure." Variety
Based on the best-selling novel by internationally acclaimed writer David Grossman, Someone to Run With captures the unrelenting pace and suspense of the book as it hurls the audience into a break-neck ride through the streets of Jerusalem. Assaf, a shy, awkward 17 year old, is hauled from his mundane summer job and given the impossible task of tracking down the owner of a lost labrador found wandering the streets of Jerusalem. As he follows the dog on its circuitous rounds, Assaf begins to piece together the incredible story behind the owner's disappearance.
