About the Film

 

During the first half of the 20th century, in Eastern Europe, a mysterious small animal appears from time to time, in a ragged old synagogue where a small Jewish community has prayed for generations. The majority of the community has stopped taking notice of this strange occurrence, except for a young Jewish boy who is obsessed with finding out the truth about these sightings. As he embarks on his quest, he loses sight of what is happening around him. The film is based on an unfinished story of the same name, written by Franz Kafka.
