  • Idit’s uncle died when he was a baby. 60 years after his presumed death, Idit is determined to find his place of burial.

    Her naïve search exposes a series of children disappearances and turns into a restless investigation into an allegedly organized and well-orchestrated kidnapping that took place during the early years of Israel’s establishment.
