Following a hundred year old account of the prominent Jewish Polish scholar Jacque Faitlovich, film-maker Irene Orleansky explores the Bal Ej (craftsmen) known as such for their pottery, weaving and iron smithing and  skills. Bal Ej are persecuted and practice Judaism in strict secrecy. The synagogues are hidden deep in the mountains and had never before been visited by strangers. Lift the curtain on the history, customs and culture of this remarkable community.
