An ancient Jewish Kabbalist burial site lies beneath a thriving Roma village called the Jewish Village. During the visit of the chief Rabbi, Sava, a young Roma boy, asks why nobody comes to visit their dead anymore. He's also eager to know whether the Messiah's return in 2006 will really bring about the resurrection he has been promised.
