Movie Info

In this personal documentary, Jerusalem-born trauma expert Ofra Bloch forces herself to confront her demons in a journey that takes her to Germany, Israel, and Palestine, where she is seen as a victim in one context and a perpetrator in the next. The film points towards a future--an "afterward"--that attempts to live with the truths of history in order to make sense of the present.
