MAMA, L’CHAIM! (TO LIFE!)

Chaim, 62, has been living with his mother, a concentration camp survivor, for the past three years. The 95-year-old has experienced terrible things that surface again and again in her memories. The film takes a non-judgemental look at the way in which the Holocaust continues to affect the lives of the children of survivors.
“L’Chaim” is a Jewish toast meaning: “to life!”
