Synopsis

A passionate anti-Semite, Csanad Szegedi rose up through the ranks to lead Hungary's far right Jobbik Party. At the peak of his political career, Szegedi discovers that his family has kept a dark secret: his maternal grandparents were in fact Jewish. After the initial shock, he enlists the help of an empathetic Rabbi who, to the horror of his peers, helps to guide him through what seems to be a 180 degree turn around. Szegedi is forced to confront his wrongdoings and appears to make the journey from anti-Semite to Orthodox Jew, but is it all an act?
