In His Image

Life after death? In Israel, this is legally possible, by taking semen right before death or posthumously. Mourning parents hope the sperm of their soldier sons killed in action will yield a new grandchild.
Does a deceased man have the right to become a father? Do parents who lost a son have the right to become grandparents after his death? In Israel, the desire for offspring has taken on an extra dimension. In His Image follows the mourning parents of three young Israeli men who are trying to produce grandchildren with the semen of their sons who died during military service. Can new life alleviate their sorrow?
