For over 20 years The Klezmatics have been at the vanguard of the international Klezmer revival movement. The Grammy award-winning group has redefined the boundaries of contemporary Jewish music, through nine albums and collaborations with such diverse artists as Chava Alberstein, Arlo Guthrie, Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Nelson. Following the group through tours in the US, Germany and Poland, this strikingly honest documentary portrait reveals the challenges faced by the Klezmatics as they strive to continue making joyous, boundary-breaking music while balancing the demands of family, career and their own individual lives.
