A couple faces up to devastating revelations against the backdrop of a turbulent history in this drama whose power and poignancy comes from what is left unsaid. Despite their misfortunes, Yoel and Ewa, haunted by the Holocaust and dealing with a debilitating heart condition, live happily together — until the day Yoel discovers evidence of a property and a man he knew nothing about until then. Tabakman’s acclaimed second film employs taut minimalism and restrained performances to trace the fault lines in a love triangle set in 1970s Israel.With the support of CONSULATE GENERAL OF ISRAËL IN MONTREAL
