This is the story of three brothers, (ages 73, 82 and 84) who set off on a journey to find a cave in the woods of Tuscany, the place where, as children, they hid to escape the Nazis. But more than a search to find a geographical location, the brothers are on their way to locate the common ground of memory, the nexus where the conflicting versions of their stories can come to rest. The result is a profound portrait of memory and history.  Director: Tamar Tal.
