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, a state which they  helped establish through their own hard work.  The confrontation with the State brings up painful childhood memeories, but the long  years spent struggling for their rights, have transformed them into a group surrounded by love, a shared fate, and consolation.
