“I learned something about my writing since my son, Uri, was killed – there’s one way we’re able to comprehend the slightest inkling of what exists beyond the impenetrable wall of death, the feeling of non-existence. And yet, to feel the vastness of what it means to be alive alongside it – through writing. That is what I search for in my writing, to exist in both places, for just a brief moment”. David Grossman shares these honest, private and intimate insights on camera, and exposes the delicate and complex connection between his novels and his personal life. The film follows Grossman up close and takes the viewers on a personal journey into the soul and work of an exceptional human being.

  • "This is a great film. Not only because it gives us an up close and personal look at the man himself but also because his discussions give us a great insight into writing, families and the grieving process. There is a great deal to process and I am still doing so several weeks after seeing the film. "
    - Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
