The mysteries within families.

Australian filmmaker Danny Ben-Moshe sets out to get to the bottom of his extraordinary family saga. The journey begins in Lithuania and takes him to the East End of London, Tehran, Los Angeles, and Israel. He has long known that his mother had two children by her first husband and that these siblings had disappeared to who knows where. As Danny’s search picks up steam, new family groupings are made and unmade with dizzying speed. Families are a messy business as they move, spread and reform, and Ben-Moshe discovers that real mysteries are surprisingly close to home.
