On his application, Thomas wrote that he was interested in learning about Israel.  Of course, that is not the whole truth.  No one who applies to work on a Kibbutz ever states the whole truth.  For Thomas, he is trying to find out the truth.  About his grandfather.  After he found the picture of him dressed in a Nazi uniform, Thomas is on a quest to learn the truth.  Is he the grandson of a Nazi torturer? He plans to find the answer in Jerusalem.  There are others who are also seeking their truths.  There is Vera from Odessa reclaiming her Jewish heritage.  And Baruch Ben Tov, a holocaust survivor.  And Sameh who believes his destiny is become a martyr.
