In August 2002, Israeli soldier Kayven Cohen was killed in Gaza. Moments after receiving the news, his parents made an unprecedented decision: to harvest sperm from his body to enable him to father a child. 11 years later, his mother launches a search for the woman who will become her grandchild’s mother and raise him. 9 months of pregnancy turn into a long turbulent journey leading up to one incomprehensible moment.
