A web of family secrets begins to unravel in this gripping documentary from Alon and Shaul Schwarz who follow a family fractured by war. Born inside a displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel, Izak learns at a late age the details of his birth mother, an unknown brother in Canada, and his father's true identity. This emotional, thought-provoking film about the plight of displaced people and war refugees is a work of resilience and compassion.
