Synopsis

Driven from the Golan Heights some 45 years ago, old Mustafa seeks to return to the house he left behind. Guided by a tough young smuggler, he crosses the heavily fortified Israeli border, but his long journey is confounded by the onset of dementia. As a camaraderie between Mustafa and the smuggler takes root, ‘The Forgotten’ confronts us with a simple but deeply distressing question: How can you go home if you can’t remember where home is?
