Imre grew up in Makó and is a ‘local boy made good’, a poor immi­grant who came to Eng­land from Hun­gary (via Israel) with noth­ing and who is now a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­man. In par­tic­u­lar, we join him on a quest to find his boy­hood friend, the elu­sive Josi Markovich who nor­mal­ly lives in New York, but is rumoured to be in Israel. On the way, we meet other Makó Jews and Imre final­ly finds him­self at a gath­er­ing of the Makó Jews, when they come togeth­er at the Makó Syn­a­gogue in B’ne Brak at the end of May to com­mem­o­rate the death of the last Makó Rabbi. This doc­u­men­tary is the third part of the serial.
