Overview

Weary of daily life in his native village of Chelm, Shmendrik sets out on a quest for knowledge that brings him to a new Chelm, a place remarkably like the old Chelm, down to the chicken's reminiscent clucks. Based on a Jewish folk tale, Village of Idiots is the story of Shmendrik's new life and its uncanny closeness to his old life.
