    Nine characters, four stories, one situation. How to act while knowing that something big, something irreversible, something that you can't run away from or fight against, is going to happen. Something bigger than anything humans have ever experienced.

    Director's Statement

    I hope the movie RUAH will raise many questions and give as many or even more answers at the same time. There are no right answers, no wrong answers. There are no leading roles, no featured roles, no beginning of the story and no ending.
