In the Yemin Moshe neighborhood of Jerusalem, overlooking the walls of the Old City, stands a windmill built by Moses Montefiore in 1857. It has been through a lot. --- Feeling that her finest days are behind her, the Montefiore Windmill in Jerusalem is having trouble adjusting to her daily reality. When she finds a way to help a fellow creature in trouble - she also finds a friend, and perhaps a new outlook on life. This short animated film brings one of Jerusalem’s quaintest landmarks to life, while suggesting a background story for how the windmill’s sails re-discovered their motion in recent years, after decades of idleness.
