A 15-year-long documentation follows the gut wrenching story of an adolescent boy who discovers one day that he had been manipulated and used throughout his life by fanatic organizations seeking to promote their ideology of fighting Jewish assimilation. He sets on a journey of redemption, in search of the truth regarding numerous rumors while confronting his worst fears. This is an extraordinary, inspirational story, connecting two extreme worlds of our existence on this disputed land, where Arabs and Jews, orthodox and seculars, right and left, mix brutally in one character. It is a story of hatred and rivalry, but mostly a story about ignorance, where an inner search leads to catharsis and the freeing of one’s own identity.
