The ongoing Hollywood double strike by actors and screenwriters has raised uncertainty regarding talent attendance at fall festivals. However, despite the challenges, it appears that the organizers of the TIFF are following through with the plan, regardless of the presence of major stars.

The plot of "Shoshana," by French screenwriter Laurence Coriat, and directed by Michael Winterbottom, unfolds in Israel and follows two British police officers, Thomas Wilkins (Douglas Booth) and Geoffrey Morton (Harry Marling), who attempt to locate the Zionist freedom fighter of the underground organization Lehi, Avraham Stern (Aury Elby). Their mission is to thwart the leader's plan for a rebellion against the British mandate. Wilkins and Morton's task successfully led them to trace Stern's footsteps, and their encounter with the Zionist leader and poet ended in his death.
As of now, the international program of the TIFF has not been revealed, and it remains uncertain if any Israeli films have been selected for the largest festival in North America.
