Shortly after its creation in Brittany (France), the Klezmer brass band «Beigale Orkestra» goes on a discovery tour of Israel. From the night bars of Tel-Aviv to the Hassidic community of Jerusalem, the visit of this Klezmer brass band, essentially made up of « goyim » (non-Jews), raises questions.
Through the thoughts and reflections of Amit and Jérôme, co-founders of« Beigale Orkestra », the film explores themes of identity and origins.
A road movie accompanied by Klezmer melodies, the « Journey of the Klezmorim » offers the chance to overcome cultural divisions by bowing before the universal power of traditional music.
