No. 17

.
David Ofek / 2004

In 2002, a bus traveling from Tel-Aviv to Tiberius blew up in a suicide bombing. 17 people were killed, of which 16 were identified. No. 17 was not. He was buried a few weeks later in an anonymous grave. The police stopped trying to identify him, believing he must have been a lone foreign worker. This is where the filmmaker steps in, documenting, over a period of six months, his real time search for the identity of a man whom no one claimed as missing.
