Movie Info

Danae Elon exposes a deep, complex, and painful portrait of Jerusalem today. The filmmaker relocates her young family from New York City to her childhood home of Jerusalem, a decision prompted by the death of her father. Danae's camera captures her three young boys growing up, asking endless questions and confronting the reality around them. She sends them to the only school in the city that teaches Arab and Jewish children together, a respite from the conflict enveloping her surroundings. But can she keep her family together-and keep a cool head-in the political and cultural heat of Jerusalem?

  • A documentary about the clash between romantic illusions in the Zionist dream of the early 50s and the ugly reality of today's Israel embodied in a family drama. Raw and realistic.
