I Love You Rosa | 1971
Nissim, at age 11, finds himself inextricably drawn to his deceased brother's widow, Rosa. When Nissim discovers that Jewish law requires him to care for her in his brother's absence, he makes his intentions known. Sensing the boy's grief, Rosa allows him to live with her over their families' protests. As years pass, Nissim's boyhood fascination becomes romantic love, even as Rosa becomes involved with Eli, a more age-appropriate match.
