A father and his filmmaker son explore the previously untold Holocaust story of 1,000 Viennese Jews stranded on the frozen Danube River in 1941 awaiting rescue by Ruth Klieger, a senior agent of the newly created Mossad. Using a clever mix of dramatic re-enactments and interviews, director Erez Laufer has created a potent hybrid Holocaust documentary film that is visually arresting and intellectually challenging.The Toronto Jewish Film Festival

Taking a fresh and unique approach to the documentary form, Erez and Nahum Laufer interweave behind-the-scenes footage of the filmmaking process with re-enactments, archival footage and present-day interviews The final result, the never-before-told story of Mossad agent Ruth Klieger, will surprise even those who think they’ve seen the "Shoah films" from every possible angle.
