After 82-year-old Elisheva Rise passed away, her children find boxes of journals she’d secretly written, documenting their lives from their birth until her last days. Strangely, she wrote about her seven children in the first person voice of each child. In this fascinating documentary, the adult children embark on an emotional journey, reading, for the first time, what their mother wrote about them. This personal documentary sheds light on what it was like to grow up on a kibbutz, as well as the universal experiences of childhood, motherhood, and parenting.
