- Hans Hausdorf, born 1919, grew up in a Breslau orphanage, not knowing his mother and not accepted by his father. Having emigrated with the help of the Zionist movement in 1938, he changed his name into Chanan Hadar and started a new life in Israel – as the only surviving member of his Jewish family. A simple life under very special circumstances unfolds, tightly connected with the foundation and identity of the new state of Israel. „Love needs a life“, says Chanan. Romantic ideas are not enough. In his case a very unusual job provides the family's basis. Chanan defends his Jewish existence by working in a bomb factory – for 36 years.
A highly emotional und historically complex topic: Israel's inner workings are hard to understand. Director Tom Kimmig based his film on a remarkable encounter with an almost 100-year-old Jew displaced from Germany and gives an impression of Israel's history, heart and soul. And a man who did not only change his name.
