When the young author Nicholas de Winter sets out from Frankfurt to fly to New York to do research on Jewish life, little does he realize that this flight will dramatically change his life.
At the airport, he ‚unexpectedly‘ meets Aviad Cohen – a Jewish, Chasidic scholar who is about to receive an enormous inheritance. To his great surprise, Nicholas becomes co-heir of this huge fortune. The only problem for both: There are challenging conditions in the form of an assignment they have to accomplish together. In the heart of Jerusalem they begin a film project, which would change them forever. Suddenly, the two men find themselves brought together by the very one who had separated their fathers and forefathers for generations: The Messiah.
