In 2010, director Yair Lev’s mother learned that she had inherited a posh cottage in North London. To take possession, all she had to do was prove that she was the daughter of Ernst Bechinsky, the former president of a Jewish community in Austria. What seemed simple instantly became mysterious with the shocking discovery of a second man named Ernst Bechinsky, with the same birthday and birthplace as her father. Lev, grandson of the real Bechinsky, turned detective and set out with co-creator David Deri to investigate. What unfolded is this astonishing and suspenseful film, a drama of survival and collaboration from a long time ago that holds beautiful messages for today. Produced by David Deri and Markus Glaser.
