Synopsis:

Yonatan, a 13-year-old boy, sets out to document the story of his 90-year-old grandmother, Masha, a holocaust survivor. Masha tells her story in a way that revives events she surpassed in front of the spectator's eyes: life in the shadow of war, the impossible decisions, the separations, the loss... The film reveals a unique encounter between a grandchild and his grandmother, serving as a bridge between the third generation and the survivors who outlived the atrocities.
