A life-affirming documentary that celebrates the remarkable life of Ella Blumenthal, whose magnetic personality and spirit has remained undimmed despite living through one of history's darkest chapters. One of the oldest living survivors to bear witness to the Holocaust, Ella celebrates her 98th birthday in the film, where she reveals to close friends and family profound memories of her incredible survival in a way she has never done before. Now 100 years old, she continues to encourage us with her strength. Told through a mixture of dynamic 2D animation and documentary footage, Ella's incredible life journey demonstrates an unwavering appreciation and zest for life that offers a universal message of resilience for a world that continues to divide when it should unite. In the face of unfathomable hate, Ella chooses to inspire us through love. Now more than ever, her story teaches us the importance of compassion and tolerance.
