70 years after his grandfather escaped from Nazi Germany to Palestine, Israeli documentary director Tomer Heymann returns to the country of his ancestors to present his film PAPER DOLLS at the Berlin International Film Festival, and there meets a man who will change his life. This 48-hour love affair, originating in "Berghain Panorama Bar", develops into a significant relationship between Tomer and Andreas Merk, a German dancer. When Andreas decides to move to Tel Aviv, he not only has to cope with a new partner, but to manage the complex realities of life in Israel and his personal connection to it as a German citizen.

I SHOT MY LOVE tells a personal but universal love story and follows the triangular relationship between Tomer, his German boyfriend, and his intensely Israeli mother, descendent of German immigrants.
