Go in Peace Rain

This film is a journey following the metamorphosis of one Jewish melody, an ancient prayer of parting from the rain and bringing the dew – and following its many incarnations, which bring it to its final dramatic stance – to be the anthem of the State of Israel.
The tune of the melody can be found in many variations and yet this is not a detective thriller about who wrote the “Hatikvah,” this film is a search for a truth, which remains elusive. The journey following the melody and the encounter with today’s upholders of tradition evokes the richness and the tremendous depths of the Jewish culture that has been nearly destroyed; the beautiful face of Judaism that has been lost.
