An Israeli Film Service documentary.
In 1973, filmmaker David Perlov came to Kfar Yehoshua to “document beautiful people”. One of them was Uzi Yisraeli, who was killed shortly afterward in the Yom Kippur War. Four years later, Perlov returns to Kfar Yahoshua to meet with Bilhah (Biba), Uzi’s widow. Biba talks about the effort to carry on with her day to day life without her husband; Uzi’s father, Menachem, who had also lost his elder son in the War of Independence, speaks with candor about his private pain: the fallen are not “the village’s sons”, he says, but his own; and in the local high school, students discuss Yehuda Amichai’s poem “I Want To Die In My Own Bed”.
