Shot on location in Spain, Portugal, Israel, the US, and Canada, this beautifully photographed and edited film tells the story of the Conversos and the memories that still haunt their descendants. The lyrical Spanish/Sephardic soundtrack features leading artists, including Placido Domingo, Zubin Mehta, and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Through extensive interviews with the children of secret believers, the film captures the modern resurrection of the ghost of a people.
