Moroccan independence from France, and Arab nationalism encouraged by Israel's existence as a state, forced many North African Jews to emigrate. This film is about the Moroccan Jews who have come to Québec since 1956. It explodes the myth of Jewish unity, showing the Moroccans caught between the Ashkenazy Jews, English-speaking and long established, and the French-speaking Québécois. The film asks whether the Sephardic Jew can be Jewish and Québécois at the same time.
