Who really was Michał Waszyński? The golden boy of cinema? A cunning fraud? Or a man who used to constantly confuse the illusion of film with reality? The Prince and the Dybbuk is a film journey in the footsteps of a human chameleon, who escaped the spirit of intolerance by constantly changing his identity.
