The unimaginable pain and anguish felt by the families of those killed in suicide bombings gets a human face in this documentary from filmmakers Steven Silver and Andrew Quigley. In 2002, a suicide bombing in Jerusalem left 20 dead and 50 injured, and two years after the tragedy even the most innocuous city landmarks can release a tidal wave of angst for the families of those killed in the blast. From firsthand accounts of the pain felt by survivors to the lingering suspicions and animosity that extend the damaging effects of the bombing well beyond the range of the explosion, Silver and Quigley's film explores the lingering effects of this vicious cycle.
