Henry Schloss, a young Holocaust survivor who lost every member of his family in the camps, develops the obsession of filming his son once he became a father. Inside, however, he struggled with undiagnosed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Call me lucky will examine what it means to live with undiagnosed PTSD and how this affects family members. The film is a work in progress.
