“Dan Wolman's drama is one of those rare films – like Truffaut's The 400 Blows – that eloquently shows the traumas of childhood, but in Hide and Seek, something of the trauma is the birth of a nation, as well." (San Francisco Chronicle) Set in British Mandate Palestine, Hide and Seek portrays the relationship between Uri, a twelve-year-old boy, and Balaban, his teacher. When Uri watches Balaban secretly meeting with an Arab, he informs the Jewish underground, leading to a tragic chain of events. Director Wolman sensitively and vividly depicts the confusions of childhood caught up in the birth pains of the emerging Jewish State.
