Eva, is a Jewish girl who was orphaned during World War II and raised by an Ukrainian peasant in the early fifties. When a mysterious woman who presents herself as her real mother wants to take the girl to Israel, Eva is torn between her adoptive mother and her biological mother. Eventually she decides to join her mother in their joint journey to Israel. A series of strange events make Eva wonder whether the woman really is her mother. If not, then who is she? More importantly, why did she take her away from her family? This is a fascinating psychological thriller about the question of identity and relationship in times of war. The film is based on the bestselling autobiography book "As Long As I Live," by Aaron Margalit, which was an unprecedented success in the ultra-Orthodox community and became the greatest best-selling book (that is not a holy book)!
DIRECTOR: Ariel Cohen | STARRING: Lucy Dubinchik, Natasha Manor
