Young pioneers betrayed their fatherland at the age of 10, fleeing with their parents from the Soviet Union to Israel – or they did as the Manskijs who changed their names, wiped away the traces of their Jewish family history and stayed. Those who left disappeared in a parallel universe in which they have remained silent for more than 30 years. Now Vitaly Manskij makes for Israel, USA, Canada and Ukraine in search of those he once knew so well, for their mutual past and for discussions about dreams and disappointments, discrimination and dominance, homeland and happiness.
