I want to present you Yitzhak, 80-years-old and his wife Fruma, 72-years. They are my parents. They are Holocaust survivors. They live in Israel. Thier moving story is told through the small gestures of the daily routine of the life of a retired couple: preparing thier food, thier meals, eating with thier grandchildren. Leaving thier daughtre a memoir.

I went back to my home town Lod (Lydda) which became the center of drug trafficking in Israel. I found that its history of 5000 years is covered under ruined houses and heaps of garbage same as my childhood landscapes and memories. The surreal reality of Lod where a third of its population is Arab-Israeli citizens became a metaphor of the whole state of Israel.
