What happens when you saddle a group of hormone-raging teens with the burden of collective Jewish suffering, just as they are about to enter the army? Inspired by his own experience as a teenager on a mandated high school trip to Poland, Asaf Saban’s (Outdoors, JFF 2019) nuanced film explores the tension between the complex realities of being a contemporary Israeli teenager and the traumatic history that they are compelled to confront. For three friends, Frisch, Nitzan and Ido, the burden of the past is eclipsed by the immediacy of the present in this sensitive coming of age tale.
