About the film

Documentary — 2019 — English

Born in Melbourne in 1951, filmmaker and psychotherapist Eve Ash had a secure and loving suburban childhood. Her parents were both Polish Holocaust survivors who arrived in Australia after the war with their first daughter Helen. Despite their traumatic experience, they loved life, their daughters – and each other. It was only after the death of both her parents that an inkling she had had for years turned out to be true: Eve’s biological father was not the man who raised her but a charming non-Jewish man named Dixie with whom Eve’s mother had a 15-year affair. As she uncovers the shocking truth and meets her many new half-siblings and the now elderly Dixie, Eve re-evaluates everything she has ever thought she knew about her family – and herself.
