Yaakav Gur, the father of the film's director, was taken prisoner by the Egyptians in the Yom Kippur War. Yaakov's Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was not diagnosed and treated for many years, resulting in significant dysfunction within the family.  Isca Gur bravely decides to tackle her father on some painful realities concerning his years as a POW, breaking many years of silence.
