As the reality for Jews in Europe is shifting, this film takes a look at the Jews of Paris today. In conversations with leading thinkers, artists and ordinary people we get an in-depth look at the range of Jewish life in France right now.
Included in the film are religious and secular, Zionists and anti-Zionists who paint a picture of the complexity in the face of rising anti-Semitism.
Among those interviewed are David Konopnicki, Mark Halter and Shmuel Trigano.

This production uses interviews with a number of different French Jews, who all discuss the present and future of the Jewish community in France. Beginning with a teacher discussing the Dreyfuss Affair with adolescents, we hear from two descendants of Captain Dreyfuss, an author, a leftist-atheist Jew, a university professor, and several others.
