From accomplished documentary director Ramy Katz comes a film that strives to shed light on a decade old mystery involving a member of one of Israel’s most fascinating subcultures, the Druze community. On the night of March 5, 2002, an armed terrorist opened fire in a Tel Aviv restaurant. Police officer Salim Barakat, a Druze, was one of the first to arrive on the scene. He died a hero that night, killed in a struggle with the terrorist—or so his family is told. For ten years, Salim’s brother Jamal attended annual police commemorations for his murdered brother. However, continued reports that Salim may have actually been killed accidentally by someone else spurs Jamal on an investigative journey in search of the truth. The deeper Jamal digs, the more complicated the truth becomes.
