"Leipzig" explores the journey of a three-member Catholic family when the mother descends into Alzheimer's Disease and begins praying in Hebrew, revealing her long held secret that she is Jewish and a child refugee of the Holocaust. Her adult daughter and only child, who has been raised as a devout Catholic, must deal with the devastating effects of her mother's secret past and come to terms with her religious identity. She calls on her childhood imaginary Jesus figure to help her through this religious crisis. Past and present collide in a psychological homecoming that raises deep and moving questions about religious identity, loyalty, and parental bonds.
