Winner—Best Israeli film, DocAviv Film Festival

For decades, Dr. Morris filmed his family – the births and deaths, joys and sorrows. Fleeing a devastated post-War Europe, this eccentric English doctor and his wife immigrated to the newly founded town of Eilat. There, they raised their children in an idyllic secluded British bubble, complete with crocodiles as family pets. Years after the doctor’s death, his forgotten film reels are found, and unusual family secrets unfold.
