Mike's Place

written by Jack Baxter and Joshua Faudem with illustrations by Koren Shadmi

June 2015

There's a rule at Mike's Place: Never, ever talk politics or religion. At this blues bar on the Tel Aviv beachfront, an international cast of characters mingles with the locals and everyone is welcome to grab a beer and forget the conflict outside. At least, that's the story Jack and Joshua want to tell in their documentary. But less than a month after they begin filming, Mike's Place is the target of a deadly suicide bombing. Jack, Joshua and the Mike's Place family survive the only way they know how --- by keeping the camera rolling.
