A Chasidic rabbi who needs money discovers his talent for tango dancing by chance and has to find a way to dance with the beautiful dance teacher without violating his religious beliefs about not touching a woman other than his wife. He consults a priest, an imam, Sikh religious leaders, rabbis, and HaShem. He deals with loving family and good-hearted people for the most part, except for the gossips. A happy movie with music and dance and humor and good people trying to help and do their best, as well as a multicultural element rarely seen in movies.

In 1975, a demolition crew was at work in central Israel, clearing away the remains of an old kibbutz. When several members of the demo team wrestled aside a large, rusted clothes washer, they revealed a small entryway that seemed to lead below ground. Bulldozers shut down their engines and cranes froze in place as members of the team looked down into the hole. What they saw, what they discovered had been kept secret, hidden for three decades.
Length: 69 minutes
Director: Michael Lopatin
