The animated film conveys a very personal connection to the “Lucky Jew” figurines and Poland. An intimate telling, it shows how affection intertwines with alienation as well the complexity of coming to terms with the presence of the “Jewish Talisman” with its complex of cultural clashes, even in one’s own home.
