Family Album
As a child, Ruby Schwarz suffered under the weight of her fatherís emotional baggage. Her Dad always blamed his own failure as a parent on the fact that his parents were Holocaust  survivors. Now aged 20, creative and independent, she finds her Grandfather Ben, who had disappeared 10 years before, standing on her doorstep. This coincides with Rubyís discovery of an abandoned violin, which she retrieves from the trash outside the home of a recently deceased Holocaust survivor. This mysterious violin, with a haunted past, enables Ruby to finally accept her own heritage and to love and accept Ben for what he is.

Daddy Come to the Fair
Mordechai Vilozny never told his children about his experiences during the Holocaust. His silence resulted in the alienation of his first born, Shmuel. He now returns to Poland after fifty years, accompanied by his two children. Through the pilgrimage, both Mordechai and Shmuel are finally liberated; the father, from the trauma of the Holocaust, the son from the shadows of his fatherís unknown pain. For the first time in many years, they are able to hug, to kiss, to laugh and to cry together. This film documents the journey as they visit the sites of Mordechaiís childhood as well as Auschwitz. Interspersed are stand-up comedy routines by Shmuel- a comic by profession- in which he is brutally frank about the emotional turmoil of a second generation Holocaust survivor.

Second Generation
Ten people, all strangers to one another, participated in a psychological group marathon session in Jerusalem- all had been born to Holocaust survivors. During the process, it becomes clear that as layer after layer of pain was exposed, what most had deemed to be their private problems, were actually the inheritance of “second generation survivors” worldwide. As they discussed their parents’ behavior and examined the effects of those behavior patterns on their own families, they tried to get past their own turbulent emotions and feelings of victimization. The fact is that the generation born after the Holocaust has now taken its place in society. This film opens a window on the emotional, cultural, political and social attitudes that define this very unique generation.
