2004 USA Documentary dir: Danae Elon 79 mins Shortly after the Six-Day War in 1967, Danae Elon's highly educated parents hired a Palestinian man named Musa, the father of eleven children, to take care of their six month old daughter on a daily basis. It was a job he would continue for the next twenty years. The last time Danae saw Musa, in 1991, he proudly showed her the house he constructed in the Palestinian village of Battir. Then, against the mounting tensions of the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Intifada, the two families lose track of each other. During that time, Danae begins to realise how much of an influence Musa had on her life and she seeks to reconnect with him. Her quest leads her from New York to Battir.
