An Apartment in Berlin

An estimated Israeli 20,000 have moved to Germany’s capital in the last few years. Attracted by its cosmopolitan and international atmosphere, Berlin has become a magnet for young Israelis - and the three characters at the center of this film are no expectation. More than 100 years ago Simon and Rosa Adler came to Berlin from Galicia to fulfil their dream of a free and successful life. This egg-merchant family’s apartment is now lovingly restored by three young Israelis. Along with the filmmaker they examine the complex connection to the history of Germany while turning the apartment into a space for discussion and encounters with both the present as well as the past.
