Dir. Alon & Shaul Schwarz, 90 min, Documentary

Two brothers, Izak and Shepsel, were born in a displaced persons camp after World War II. The brothers were separated as babies, and neither was told the other existed. An investigation into the mysterious history of their birth family led to an amazing reunion after six decades. Family secrets and generations of contemporary history are uncovered in this sweeping international story that begins with World War II and concludes with an emotional 21st century family reunion. Timely questions of identity, resilience, compassion, and the plight of displaced persons are brought to life as brothers Izak and Shep meet in Canada, and travel to a nursing home in Quebec to meet their elderly mother, the mysterious Aida. Will be officially released in the US in Fall 2017.
