Description

“The most thrilling film playing in Israel at the moment and the best thriller I've seen in years” (Uri Klein, Ha’aretz). When filmmaker Yair Lev inadvertently discovers that the identity of his grandfather, Ernst Bechinsky, was stolen during WWII, he sets out to unravel the mystery. His journey takes him to Austria, where the second Ernst Bechinsky was the president of the Innsbruck Jewish community. Who was this man and why did he do this? With the help of a stranger – the grandson of the other Bechinsky – these two men, from two sides of history, join together to expose the true identity of the man who stole the identity of Lev’s grandfather.
