In 1928, Stalin created the world's first Jewish state in Siberia called the Jewish Autonomus Region (J.A.R.) where young idealists from many nations built a homeland rich in Jewish culture. By 1948, the Jewish population had peaked at 45,000. With Birobidzhan as its capital, it was home to Yiddish schools, theaters, publications and synagogues. This documentary features interviews with pioneer settlers, current residents, footage from Russian archives and scenes from the Soviet propaganda film, Seekers of happiness.
