This is the fascinating story of Polish citizens who learn, often after living a lifetime as Christians in a Communist nation, that they are indeed of Jewish origin. Trapped between the familiar Polish world and an alien Jewish world, these “new Jews” often find themselves adrift in a country where religion and nationhood are inextricably linked. Filmmaker Ronit Kertsner’s gripping documentary introduces the audience to students, homemakers, and even a Catholic priest, who are on a quest to discover the truth about their pasts and its consequences for their future.
