Song of Galilee

An obituary about the mysterious death of a young poet named Shaul Havilio sends actor-director Daniel Wachsman on an investigation in the Galilee. During the investigation and a meeting with the five suspects, he uncovers a conspiracy of silence surrounding a dark mystery (one of the great legends of Jewish history: the fate of the Temple treasures). When a group of extremists attempts to silence him, Wachsman is forced to go undercover and finish his film as quickly as possible, seeing as it’s the only thing that can ensure his safety.
