What if in your great-grandfather's letters there is a mystery your family doesn't want to talk about? In 1920 Angelo Levi Bianchini set out to Palestine on an Italian diplomatic mission and never came back. This film is my journey into the Middle Eastern conflict and into the death of a man who believed in a land shared by Arabs, Jews and Christians.
