Having started his career as a rabbi at 70, William Wolff, now nearly 90, is not your average man. Born into an Orthodox family in Berlin, Wolff moved to England with his parents at the age of 12. He was a successful political correspondent before deciding on pursuing his dream of becoming a rabbi, a decision that brought him back to his homeland. This heartwarming documentary introduces us to the fascinating and delightful Wolff as he travels back and forth between his home in Henley-on-Thames and north-eastern Germany where he serves as a State Rabbi.
