The play recounts two journeys simultaneously. The first, the inner world of Amos, an Israeli boy on the brink of Bar Mitzvah, full of confusion and hostility. The second is the journey of his grandfather, also nearing Bar Mitzvah, during the time of the Holocaust, seeking refuge and striving to survive. The story of the grandfather and his love for his grandson comforts Amos and helps him to mature. This production has been presented over 2000 times in the past 18 years to families throughout Israeland toured throughout North America on three different occasions
