The Bene Israel community of Bombay (Mumbai) originated with a shipwreck off the coast of India 2,000 years ago. They continued to observe Judaism through the generations, and the community eventually spread to Bombay. As one member said, “Israel is our Fatherland – India is our Motherland”. But today, the community is dwindling; this film tells the tale of an Indian Jewish family that struggles to keep Judaism alive in Bombay.
