Tel Aviv, on the corner of Dizengoff and Arlozorov.

Member of the youngest generation of the Farag family, director Kobi Farag went on a journey to discover the family history.

By digging in the private archives,he peeled layer by layer to reveal the story of ten brothers and sisters who immigrated from Baghdad in the fifties and climbed the ladder of success from their lives in the transition camp to a luxurious home. In his own way, he tries to solve the riddle of the painful disintegration of the family that drifted apart.
