How do you build your own relationship to Israel?
Each Year Thousands of American Jews visit Israel.
These are some of their stories.
Some come to see the sights, some go off the beaten track. Some see things they don't expect to see. But everyone goes through a personal journey.
For more than a year not so simple productions turned a camera on these travelers. The result is an honest and moving collective portrait, graced with visual beauty and spiced with humor. Eyes Wide Open challenges the viewer to reflect upon one's own relationship to Israel, and to begin a fresh conversation.
