Storyline

The last Rabbi of Kaifeng, China died over a century ago. Now, a group of modern Jewish expatriates travels to China to seek the remains of this ancient Jewish community. An unexpected gathering with the last descendants of the Kaifeng Jews transforms a celebration of Shabbat into an historical event. The arguments on identity and Diaspora that follow lead the Minyan to realize that their questions about the Jews of Kaifeng are also questions about themselves, and that these important questions have no easy answers.
