This film is about freedom and captivity, about the roles played by Moses and Felix Mendelssohn in the dream of fruitful, unproblematic integration of the Jews into German society after their liberation from the ghettos; it is about Richard Wagner, his ferociously anti-Semitic essay Das Judenthum in der Musik (Judaism in Music) but most of all, it is a film about how much music can mean to people.
