Is it ok to speak about illness with the most irreverent irony? Can the hope and desire to live take root in even the deepest pain? Can a descent to the underworld be transformed into a hymn to life? This story about Valter becomes a story about the many (too many) children who have become adults within a hospital. They have reckoned with the worst hardship and have brushed with death without losing the strength to fight for their lives much like a newborn who instinctively rises to the surface from under water.
June 1967. Nine Israeli soldiers traveling in the Sinai on three light tanks during the Six Days War somehow find themselves cast back 25 years in the past, facing the Panzers of Feldmarschal Erwin Rommel on the sands of the Egyptian desert. Possibly a “wormhole” or a tear in the fabric of spacetime has brought them back to October 1942, where the men of the Afrika Korps are withdrawing after the defeat of El Alamein. But the tankmen are not content with their role of observers. With the help of two Israeli pilots also arrived from 1967 along with their supersonic Mirage jets they heavily interfere with historical events that occurred before they were born. The result is cataclysmic. When a specular accident brings them back to 1967, they discover that everything is changed, that the world is no longer the one they left. Israel no longer exists, or rather never existed. The balance of power on Earth has changed, power relations among nations are completely different from the ones they remember. But it is the changes to their personal situation that is the greatest nightmare. They have unwittingly cut their own roots; it is as if they no longer existed, as if they had never existed…
Hannah is the intimate portrait of a woman’s loss of identity as she teeters between denial and reality.
Left alone grappling with the consequences of her husband’s imprisonment, Hannah begins to unravel. Through the exploration of her fractured sense of identity and loss of self-control, the film investigates modern day alienation, the struggle to connect, and the dividing lines between individual identity, personal relationships, and societal pressures.
