The half-hour film incorporates elements of time travel, special effects, and liberal doses of schmaltz.
Here's a synopsis of the plot:
Israel Stein, the world’s most intrepid Gastronomical Archeologist, embarks on his greatest adventure yet when a lucky clue points him toward the legendary lost city of Chelm, source of a gefilte fish recipe that reportedly was to die for.
Following a trail of clues to Poland, Israel learns that Rachel Liebner, a gastronomical geneticist has gotten there ahead of him. But when a third party tries to steal the recipe for himself, can the two scientists find a way to bring the recipe back for the good of all mankind?
Released in time for Chanukah, this short film should appeal to anyone who enjoys spoofs, satire, parody, and takeoffs on popular movies.
The DVD is available from the producer's web site for $15 with free shipping in the U.S. and Canada.
