Hungarian born composer Andre Hajdu, winner of the Israel Prize, is also a Holocaust survivor who made aliyah after the war and raised his children in Israel. Of secular birth, Hajdu became an orthodox Jew as an adult – yet his grown children, also featured in the film, include a son who is gay, a son who is secular and a son who is Haredi. Hajdu shares his Holocaust background, his emergence as a creative force and his family relationships in this intriguing documentary.
