My Australia (with English subtitles) was directed by Ami Drozd. This semi-autobiographical film takes place in Poland in the 1960s and tells the story of 10-year old Tadek and his older brother who are part of a neo-Nazi gang. Following the arrest of the boys by the local police, their mother, who concealed her Jewish identity, tells her younger son that they are about to sail to Australia, the land of his dreams, when in reality they are to sail to Israel.
