My friend from Chicago was searching for his Jewish roots in Poland. He discovered that his family came from one of those small towns Jews called “shtetl”. He was 2 years old, living in America, when his father died. "Only by going to Bransk I can touch my father and understand who I am,” he told me. I film his trip, not knowing that it will become a journey to my own haunted past.
