Michale Boganim, a young Franco-Israeli filmmaker, follows the journeys of Odessa’s Jewish community, exiled from Israel and the United States. She offers a nostalgic and touching triptych of these cities in three colors: blue Odessa, with the faded beauty of an old city, Little Odessa, a Russian enclave in brick-colored New York, and Ashdod, a glaringly white mushroom town that has strung up in the Israeli desert.
