At the age of 40, journalist Oshrat Kotler realizes that she is suffering the symptoms of the second generation to the Holocaust. This insight rattles her world because it contradicts the insistence of her father, born in Bulgaria, that "he didn't endure the Holocaust". Former Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi also indicates that the Holocaust wasn't really talked about at home. "We Are All Bulgarians" is a personal, profound and moving film; it begins with the unique story of Bulgarian Jews whose lives were saved due to the massive support of the Bulgarian people and ends with a journey to Bulgaria that the two will embark on to trace their family history and the story of Bulgarian Jewry. The journey also evokes contemporary questions as to the historic role of a nation faced with the suffering of a minority living in its midst.
