“I’m HI Jew positive!” Yurek, a young Polish student, has just found out that he is a Jew and expresses his feelings about his newly discovered identity. Every day catholic polish people find out that their parents have concealed their true identities and that they are actually of Jewish descent – the second and third generation of Holocaust survivors. The film starts over 14 years ago, even with that discovery in the lives of three people and pursues their future lives – a difficult search for their identity, in a country where Judaism is still struggling with resistance.”
