In 2004, Saul Henteleff began a journey into the practice and philosophy of Taharah, the Jewish ritual of preparing a Jewish body for burial. This journey led to the creation of a 30 minute documentary film in which Henteleff presents a personal, point-of-view account of the Taharah beginning in the Jewish mortuary and ending at the moment of burial.
