Synopsis

What motivates a man to leave his home, wife and children on a cold night, to help Muslim refugees, who are marching towards the border of his country? Hans Breuer, a Jewish wandering Shepard in Austria who dedicates his life to help refugees throughout Europe, while singing Yiddish lullabies to comfort them. The film follows Hans and other ordinary citizens, who help refugees in any way they can. It is a thought-provoking film about compassion, its origins, and its boundaries while connecting Jewish history with current reality.
