The movie tells the story of two Jewish families that come from two towns in Poland, Jabłonna and Pułtusk. The story takes us from their pre-WWII life, through the affairs they endured during the war to their post WWII rebirth in Israel. The film is based on two books. One was written by one of the film creators, Dr. Arie Yagoda, “Now it is straight.” The other by Dr. Yagoda mother in law, Mrs. Mania Fuxman, “Life With Hope.” In addition, the film discusses contemporary Poland and the preservation of its Jewish heritage and folklore, as seen by the film’s creator during his tour of Poland.
