The Samaritans: A Biblical People
On Mount Gerizim, a community of 850 Samaritans and their 3,500-year-old biblical tradition struggle to survive. Endangered by the modern life surrounding them and strict customs on marriage within their religion, they try to prevent extinction and preserve the community, the Torah, and their Holy Mountain.

The Samaritans deserves the best compliment you can give to a documentary - when it's over you still want to see more. Mako
