The film “Fireflies” (Gachliliyot) is the story of Gili, a 12 year old boy, a 24 year old young man and a 44 year old adult, who ventures out in search of his brother, Giora, who remained forever 19 after dissapearing in the Yom Kippur War. This is a personal, genuine, moving and devastating documentation about mental crisis and bereavement, drugs and hallucinations, a falling star and fireflies, that combines reality and imagination, love and hope, in Jerusalem, the Sinai, Nepal and everywhere in between.
