A powerful and unexpected character-driven drama, the story of FOLKSWAGON will grab you and hold you. Stifled by the army service he just completed, and desperate to get away from the looming pain of his grandmother's recent death, Gill leaves Israel for a new start in New York City. He finds himself living with Jacob, an elderly holocaust survivor whose odd habits include hoarding compulsively and anonymously attending funerals. Living with Jacob, a survivor like his grandmother, forces Gil to confront his unresolved feelings against the German people. Things only get worse when the one girl he takes interest in turns out to be German.
