The origin story behind one of Broadway's most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when "tradition" was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving.

“Max Lewkowicz's documentary keeps reminding us of the multiple sources of inspiration for this quintessentially Jewish musical, from the paintings of Marc Chagall to the politics of the day.” - Jason Zinoman, New York Times

“Max Lewkowicz's documentary emerges as essential viewing by exposing the behind-the-scenes drama and on-stage magic of 'Fiddler on the Roof,' a musical and cultural landmark whose influence spans nations, races, religions and generations.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
