About the project:

Poised on the cusp of the Bar Mitzvah of his oldest child, Chasidic pop star Lipa Schmeltzer takes an emotional journey back through time, as he seeks to continue the legacy of the grandfather he never knew through the son who carries his name, in a documentary titled "Searching for Moshe Yossi."
