The Last Battle of the “Teheran Children”

The Last Battle of the “Teheran Children”

Avraham, Ziggy, Schreiber and Robinson form the uncrowned governing council of the “Teheran Children.” The four represent 217 Holocaust orphans who are now bringing legal action against the State of Israel for funds received from Germany for their rehabilitation.
In their old age, they have set out to battle the State of Israel, the state in which they  established through their own hard work.  The confrontation with the State once again floods them with the pain of orphanhood. The long  years of struggle have transformed them into a group surrounded by love, a shared fate, and consolation.
