Two brothers who are part of an anti semitic gang discover that they are Jewish
Poland, 1960's. 10-year-old Tadek and his brother are part of an anti-Semitic gang. When they are arrested, their mother, a Holocaust survivor, has no choice but to reveal that though raised as Catholics, they are in fact Jews. Telling the younger boy they are going to Australia, the land of his fantasies, the family boards a ship to Israel. This tender and humorous drama is based on the filmmaker’s own experiences.
