Aida's Secrets

Synopsis

Izak and Shepsel were born in the post-war chaos of the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp, but never told of each other's existence. While Izak was sent away for adoption in Israel, his visually impaired brother Shepsel ended up in Canada, both separated from their Polish birth mother Aida. With the help of an investigator, the siblings are reunited for the first time in 65 years, before traveling together to a Quebec nursing home to meet their elderly mother and uncover the mystery of their splintered family.
