"Between the years 1950-51 close to 130 thousand Jews left Iraq. The most ancient community in the world ceased to exist." Synopsis: The story takes place in the 1950's from the point of view of Kabi Amari, a 16 year-old student, from a Zionist family. When his Uncle Hazkael is arrested, Kabi takes on the task of discovering Hazkael’s whereabouts, thus joining the Zionist underground. Kabi's family lived in a world with inner contradictions and ambivalent relationship. From one hand there is a strong connection to the Muslim world and the Arabic culture, but from the other hand they live under the fear of being deported from their own country. This film is dedicated to preserving the memory of the near-extinct Jewish communities, which can never return to what and where they once were. The whole film is in Jewish Arabic and played by Israeli and Arabic actors.
