In the film I’m Not Going To Tell You A Story, Menachem Roth and Yekutiel Roth try to cope with telling the story of their grandmother, a survivor of the Holocaust. They try to interview her, asking that she tell them her story. She describes how the Nazis made soap out of human bodies just after murdering them. The Roth brothers first travel to Bnei Brak, which still has the appearance of an East Europe Jewish town. The journey then continues to Majdanek, Poland and every time one of the brothers tries to tell the story in the Majdanek’s crematorium, the narrative is stopped by the teller with the words “not good.” How can one tell a story that cannot be told? How to tell a story that the mind refuses to understand? 
The brothers as protagonists come back to Israel and drive their grandmother and grandfather on a tour near Bnei Brak. What we see outside the car windows is barbed wire fences, control towers and soldiers. There is a strong feeling that the old couple never left the camps at Auschwitz.
It looks as if the evil jinn has burst out of its bottle, and now it is impossible to push it back in. Like a radioactive bomb, its generations-long impact impossible to predict, so this evil exploded across Europe in the war, continuing to echo down the ages in the Middle East via its carriers.
