Conflict is, after all, a battle between stories and memories.
Through the stories of Anshel, a Jewish man, and Haneen, an Arab woman – two demented elderly people whose paths crossed during the 1948 war. "Our Heroes" challenges the narratives: the memory triggers running through them, the connection between "story" and "experience", and our ability, as those who are wrapped up in this war, to rise above it.    
This is a truly manipulative short film about the so many manipulations we live through, Jews and Arabs of all ages alike.
