I Shot My Love

Seventy years after his grandfather escapes from Nazi Germany to Palestine, Israeli documentary filmmaker Tomer Heymann returns to the country of his ancestors to present his film Paper Dolls at the Berlin International Film Festival, and there meets a man who will change his life.
This 48-hour love affair develops into a significant relationship between Tomer and Andreas Merk, a German dancer. When Andreas decides to move to Tel Aviv, he not only has to cope with a new partner, but to manage the complex realities of life in Israel and his personal connection to it as a German citizen. Tomer’s mother, a descendent of German immigrants who was born and lived all her life in a small Israeli village, watches her children one by one leave the country she and her family helped to build, and now cannot help but try to influence the life of Tomer, the one son who remains in Israel.
