“absorbing and beautifully shot film” – Jewish News

“It is an illuminating and fascinating look at what propels so many Jews to over-achieve on so many fronts and what the consequences — both positive and negative — have been.”

– The Montreal Gazette

A daring and important exploration of the reasons for outstanding Jewish achievement in the arts and sciences. With fascinating insights from the late Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Shimon Peres, Howard Jacobson, Dr Ruth, Noam Chomsky and many more, a lively debate is guaranteed.
