Jakub Weksler is a Catholic priest who was born to Jewish parents during the Holocaust, but given as an infant to a Polish family who raised him as their own. Having discovered the truth as an adult, he wishes to make Aliyah and live as a Jew on a religious Kibbutz while maintaining his Catholic faith. How the State of Israel and the people around him respond to this identity dilemma is the focus of this fascinating film.  72 minutes. Hebrew, Polish, English, French with subtitles. Documentary.
