The Moroccan-born rabbi, David Buzaglo, is considered by many to be the greatest Hebrew liturgical poet of the 20th century. His innovative writings often riffed on risqué Arab pop while remaining faithful to a centuries-old Andalusian musical tradition. This film, directed by Rafael Balulu, takes an intimate look at how Buzaglo significantly impacted Moroccan Jews before and after many immigrated to Israel and how his legacy has contributed to an Israeli cultural revolution today.
