Plot Outline

A documentary that looks at the problems for young modern Israelis returning to the Germanic countries of central Europe, and in particular how this impacts upon older generations of their families, who had to leave countries like Austria and Germany. Central to the film is the impending move to Berlin of the two filmmakers Gil Levanon and Kat Rohrer. The former has a grandfather who cannot forgive Germany for what it did to him and his family, whereas the latter is an Austrian whose grandfather was a committed Nazi.

Special screening on Sunday, October 14 at 14:00 in the presence of film makers Gil Levanon and Kat Rohrer
