Z.A.K.A is an Orthodox Jewish volunteer force in Israel who immediately respond to any terror attack, disaster or accident. When Jacob, a Z.A.K.A volunteer, makes the split-second decision to treat a young Arab woman, instead of the soldier she may have killed, his world is changed forever. A powerful thriller from Toronto's Human Cargo and winner of the 2019 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Production, Outstanding Direction and Outstanding New Play.

"The Runner will make your heart soar and leave you breathless."
