Mostar Haloch Vashov

Mostar Round-Trip

One year after 17-year-old Yuval leaves his home in Israel to attend UWC international high-school situated in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, filmmaker David Fisher, his father, follows. During three round-trips to Mostar, Yuval’s relationships unfold: with his father, his Israeli peers and his Spanish girlfriend, Neus. Although Yuval is far from home, this actually brings father and son closer together. Yuval and his roommate Salam, an Israeli Arab, have passionate political debates. Far from home these youngsters learn to open up to other cultures, and this changes their perception of their not-so-beloved neighbors.
