Description

Shaked was raised hearing stories about his war-hero uncle who was killed in the 1967 war and whose absence is still keenly felt by the family. When Shaked discovers that his uncle Ami did not, in fact, die on the battlefield, he sets out to uncover the truth. Family secrets are uncovered and he gains the strength to reveal one of his own. This moving documentary highlights the price of keeping secrets and the healing power of being true to oneself and honest with others.
