(2015, 56 mins., DVD, Italian and Hebrew) Thousands of Jewish survivors landed in Southern Italy after WWII, on their way to Israel. Amazed by the welcome they received from the local population, they found joy and healing while they awaited the ships that would run the British blockade. Hundreds of children were born during the wait. This documentary follows the story of three Israeli women born at that time as they discover the place and culture where their parents began to believe in life again. Weaving rare historical footage with unique testimonies, the film captures rays of light after great darkness.
