The musical genre known as klezmer, a heavily improvised celebratory form developed by Eastern European Jews, has a mysterious history. This documentary traces the evolutions of two pioneering klezmer bands, the Klezmer Conservatory Band and Kapelye, uncovering some of the genre's shrouded roots. Featuring a wealth of performance and compositional footage, the film also documents the transition from the old guard of klezmer to the new age that took off in America in the early 20th century.
