"My Australia" follows a single mother, who struggles to raise her sons in 1960s Poland. After the fatherless boys join a neighborhood gang with a strong Neo Nazi orientation and are arrested for attacking Jewish youngsters, she decides to tell her streetwise boys the truth: she is a Jew who survived the Holocaust and raised them in the Catholic faith. Fearing the dangerous road the boys are going down, Helina decides to move them away from Poland. The youngest boy is told they are immigrating to Australia, the place of his dreams, when in truth they are immigrating to Israel. This touching family drama explores the struggles of finding one’s identity, while building a new life in a foreign land.
