Winner of the Lia Award at the Jerusalem Film Festival, this intense film tells the shocking true story of a “hate crime” in France when a young Jewish man was kidnapped and tortured by an immigrant gang. In January of 2006, 23 year old Ilan met a beautiful young woman in a Parisian cellphone shop who lured him into a trap. Based on a book co-written by Ilan’s mother, Ruth Halimi, Arcady’s cinematic adaptation offers a searing insight into his vicious ordeal, the violent world of the Gang of Barbarians, and the harrowing experience of his family waiting and hoping the Police would save their son.
