Absolute Happiness

Haifa Film Festival

“I was sixteen years old when my older sister Rachel moved to Kibbutz Neot Smadar. Many rumors spread about this secluded place that some saw as a sect headed by a Guru Josef Safra. But, like my sister, I saw it as heaven on earth and longed to visit there every time possible, drawn to this magical oasis with its radiant members.
When Rachel decides to leave the place after fifteen years, I went on a journey to understand why and reveal the hidden story.”
