She lived in Cairo, Paris and New York, but died in an old age home in Givatayim. She was admired and beautiful, but only few knew her during her life and even less after she passed away. She was the first to write of Levantine and Mizrachi identities, like no one else before her. Director Rafael Balulu goes on a journey in the footsteps of the Levantine thinker and author Jacqueline Kahanoff and through encounters with her elderly friends in Paris, leading intellectuals in the Mizrachi discourse in Israel and fascinating Levantine women artists, he not only draws a portrait of this impressive thinker, but also discovers the fate of Levantine identity in Israel as a cultural option of Pride And and Honor.
