Director Simon Target follows the barely credible story of British professor Jonathan Webber, on a journey to restore an abandoned Jewish cemetery in a sleepy town in southern Poland. Not only the unsuspecting inhabitants of Brzostek, but also the descendants of Brzostek’s Jews are thrown back into their own past, in this moving, funny and inspiring documentary.
