Argentinean cameraman Leandro makes a living filming Jewish weddings. At one of his jobs, he falls in love with Paloma, the clarinettist of the klezmer band. To seduce her, he pretends to be filming a documentary about traditional Yiddish folk music. What Leandro doesn’t know is that his “fake” film project will lead him on an unscripted journey across Eastern Europe in search of the last remaining klezmer melodies.
