Summary note
The stunning social, scientific and artistic accomplishments of the Jews raise an obvious question. How do they do it? From Shimon Peres to Judit Polgar and Dr. Ruth, from Noam Chomsky to Daniel Libeskind and Alan Dershowitz, some of the world's most accomplished Jews tackle a mystery shrouded in ignorance and prejudice. This film tears back the curtain on a taboo and draws a startling link between Jewish exceptionalism and the Holocaust.
