My Beloved Uncles

Obsessed with the disappearance of his uncle Yisral some 65 years ago, filmmaker Eran Barak returns to his family’s old neighborhood. In his search he turns to his various relatives:
Uncle Gavriel, who was just released after 35 years in prison; Uncle Aryeh, wallowing in thoughts while lounging on his mother’s sofa; and uncle Uri who makes a living collecting scrap-metal and looking for a meaningful relationship.
The Poetic quest for a long-vanished uncle inspires questions of identity, fate, dreams and hopes.
