Menahem Lang opens the secret door to his hometown, Bneï Brak. It’s the city of “the men in black”, the global capital of ultra-orthodox Jews. It’s a return to the scene of the crime: this is where he was raped throughout his childhood. It’s also a return to the places he loved so much, an introductory journey dispersed with incredible encounters, rediscovered rituals… a reconciliation.
