Past Life

Synopsis

Set in the late 1970s, the film centers on the daughters of Holocaust survivors, combative liberal journalist Nana and her younger sister Sephi, a soprano and aspiring composer. After a performance in West Berlin, Sephi is accosted by an elderly Polish woman who angrily accuses her father of murder. Traumatized by the startling encounter, the sisters launch an investigation, attempting to discover what really happened to their father in Poland during the war. As secrets and revelations are dredged up, the film boldly charts dangerous emotional territory, still very much part of the Israeli collective subconscious.
