A dispirited videographer of Jewish weddings starts making a documentary about his recently deceased grandfather. His aversion towards religion was the only conflictive issue between them. However, in one of these weddings he falls in love with a klezmer clarinet player who leaves a few days later to embark in a long journey to the Ukraine, so makes up a klezmer music documentary as an excuse to go after her. The cameraman begins to discover certain aspects of his grandfather’s culture that resonates in him. The Yiddish culture represented a kind of Judaism that shared territory with other cultures, nourishing from them and resulting in a rich and outbreeding culture. Almost nothing is left of that unknown face of Judaism. In his journey, the cameraman films musicians who represent the last remains of a culture that hasn’t been passed on to the new generations and is thus about to disappear.
