The Dove Flyer
Based on the novel by Eli Amir, The Dove Flyer tells the story of the most ancient Jewish community in the world, the Jews of Iraq. This drama focuses on the final years that the Jewish community was in Baghdad, before its expulsion and resettlement in Israel in the early 1950s. In these turbulent times, a 16-year-old becomes part of the underground Zionist movement, and he is forced to make difficult decisions that impact his family and friends.
