Summary

A cinematic journey on the trail of Hollywood filmmaker and "human chameleon", Michal Waszynski. Who was Moshe Walks really? A golden boy of cinema, a fraud or a man who constantly confused the illusion of wilm with reality? The son of a poor Jewish blacksmith from Ukraine, died in Italy as Prince Michael Waszynski, Hollywood producer and exiled Polish aristocrat. He made more than 50 films including cinema hits with Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinale. However only one film was his true obsession - "The Dybbuk" - based on an old Jewish legend, the most important and mystical Yiddish film ever made, directed by Waszynski shortly before the outbreak of the WWII.
