Synopsis:

Argentinean-born Israeli filmmakers Jorge Gurvich and Shlomo Slutzky met in Buenos Aires in the 1970's before both men immigrated to Israel. Thirty years later, they take up the question of Jewish-Argentine history, identity and especially attitudes towards Israel. Over a period of six years, Gurvich and Slutzky interviewed a host of Argentinean Jews, examining their decisions to remain in Argentina or emigrate to Israel.

The Argentinean Jews struggle with economic and emotional issues which are often painful. The film reveals the difficulties common to many immigrants, especially Jews in the diaspora who struggle to find a safe and sustaining place for themselves and their families.
