“I know you killed me,” says the 3-year-old. What they find underneath a rock in a nearby village is inexplainable.
This is the extraordinary story of a 3-year-old Syrian boy. He is from a small settlement in the Golan Heights and tells the village's adults something astounding.
His parents ignore him at first; children always talk nonsense. But the little one stubbornly sticks with his story. His memories torment him. He remembers terrible images of an ax and an argument. Eventually, his parents start to believe him and the story spreads around his village.
This story causes a sensation, especially since the inhabitants are ethnic minorities called Druzes. They believe in reincarnation and rebirth, which is why the boy’s words take on a special meaning. The boy was also born with a flaming-red birthmark on his forehead. The Druze believe that this signifies a wound in a previous life.
The boy claims that he was killed with an ax in his previous life. But what is even more unbelievable: he remembers his hometown and his killer.
