The Moon is Jewish

Paweł, a former skinhead, built his identity on soccer and hatred, brawling with fans of the opposite teams and bullying minorities. His life suddenly changes when his wife discovers Paweł’s Jewish ancestry which ignites a fierce identity struggle. Eventually he transforms both physically and spiritually, becoming an Orthodox Jew. The film title is cleverly borrowed from a contemporary song about a fabricated Jewish plot to claim that everything--Chopin, the pillow, even the moon--is Jewish. This unusual, inspiring story follows someone who emerges from a life of hate to find his soul come to life within that which was once the source of his hatred.
