    • Synopsis
    • The decision was prompted by the death of her father, leading Israeli intellectual and writer Amos Elon It was his dying wish that Danae not return, but her attachment to the place she always called home was stronger. On a journey back Danae’s camera captures her three young boys growing up, asking endless questions and confronting the reality around them The place she once saw as “home” challenges her relationship with her partner and the future of her kids It is through the prism of parenthood, children and a family that the story of this film exposes a deep, complex and painful portrait of Jerusalem today.
