Struggling with their own proverbial “YidLife Crisis,” two Montrealers on the cusp of middle age return to Montreal to discover their own mixed-up heritage in the story of Jewish Montreal. Told through an entire day’s worth of eating in and around the city, this film follows Jamie, Eli and guests as they discover the roots of the city’s Jewish community through a series of classic Jewish eateries that tell the story of their community over the last 100 years.
