- Professor Trude Dothan, 86, is the first lady of Israeli archeology. She is an Israel Prize laureate and an international expert on the Philistines. Her son, filmmaker Dani Dothan, decides it is time to 'excavate' his mother's energetic life. She falls and is housebound for the first time in her life and that is when the real excavation begins. He searches through cabinets and drawers of objects, drawings, even death masks and discovers a life that his mother kept hidden. Dani uncovers a world he never knew, as the layers unravel so does the relationship between mother and son.
