A 12 year-old girl must complete an ancestry assignment for school, but what begins as a boring task slowly becomes a sweeping drama that unearths the buried secrets of three generations of one family - from before the outbreak of World War II on to the Holocaust and ending with the fall of the kibbutz's socialist idealism. What does this heavy historical burden mean for a young girl today, one who lives through social networks, soap operas and telenovelas? A first-person documentary about the unsettling thought that life is a chain of events governed by coincidence and not by individual choice.
