Back to My Roots
Four generations of a Jewish family live under one roof. Despite living next door to a synagogue, the Abramovich’s, with the exception of Grandmother Musa, are not strong on Jewish tradition, religion or identity: Boris’ business is buying, selling (and eating) pork. Meanwhile his son, David hides his origins from his friends, and his wife, Alla has no idea how much she resembles the stereotypical Jewish mother. Everything changes one day when Boris is struck by lightning. While unconscious, he is visited by the spirit of Haim, a long dead and somewhat obnoxious family ancestor. Haim reveals that a long time ago he committed a terrible sin, which resulted in a curse being placed on the entire family. It turns out that only Boris can remove the curse – by setting free Haim’s soul!
