In this Hot Docs hit, two brothers separated at birth are reunited in a moving quest to uncover their mother's family secrets. Izak Szewelwicz was born in the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. He connects with his birth mother years later, only to discover that there is even more to her story. Filmmakers Alon and Shaul Schwarz set out to find answers as Izak finally meets his brother Shep — both nearly 70 years old before taking him to visit their elderly mother, Aida, for the first time. This stunning story of displacement, identity and the fracturing effects of tumultuous political periods is a testament to the resilience of family and the ties that bind us together.
