"Do you know why it wasn't worth it? Because my children are torn between two worlds. I am angry, really angry, because we've created this situation!"
"Thus my mother summarizes 25 years in America. When I was nine years old my parents emigrated from Israel to New York with my two brothers and myself. Being an immigrant in America was both attractive and threatening to me. America for us was a strange and intriguing place in the mid 1960's, yet we weren't sure whether we should like it since my brothers and I grew up in a household where the reality of immigration was a source of constant strain between our parents. This led to an atmosphere of uncertainty characterized by conflicting educational messages - for and against our new lives in America" (A. Goren).
Twenty five years have passed since then and now the three brothers define their personal and national identity in strikingly different terms. This film is a journey to the past, present, and possible future, of a family that over the years became scattered throughout the USA and Israel. It is ultimately a fascinating, emotional story about uprooting and immigration, identity and belonging, which follows the trail of one family's wandering - Alexandria, Tel Aviv, Los Angeles and New York.
