Kielce, Poland, was the site of Europes last Jewish pogrom. It occurred in 1946, a year after WWII ended. Townspeople killed forty Holocaust survivors seeking shelter in a downtown building, and injured 80 more around the city. Filming in Poland, Israel and the United States for almost a decade, the filmmakers, a Polish Catholic and a Jewish American, have a unique perspective on how one individual confronts the religious hatred that poisoned his town.
