Saar is a 40 year-old Israeli Jew living in London.He grew up on an Orthodox kibbutz in Israel and became an IDF paratrooper. After coming out to his family he moved away, using geographic distance to ensure emotional safety.. When, years later, Saar learns that he is HIV positive, he is driven to reconnect – both with his homeland and his family, struggling between needing his family’s love and resenting their fears and prejudices. As he grapples with the choice of whether or not to move back to Israel, Saar finds comfort with the London Gay Men’s Chorus, who provides the film’s glorious soundtrack.
Prior to the screening, enjoy a performance by the Portland Gay Mens Choir.
