Nobody will know is about children raised in a Jewish orphanage that existed in Moscow from 1923 to 1933. Five graduates of this orphanage still live. They speak about the years spent there as of the best years of their lives. They went through terribles times, "times of the beast," as the Russian poet Mandelstam called them, and kept their dignity and their gratitude towards those who helped them survive in those hard twenties. Unique documentary footage used in the movie helps us feel the athmosphere aurrounding children, the athmosphere with the main principle: all Jews are responsible for one another. Documentary footage is complemented with the modern one. In this movie we will meet children from the new Jewish orphanage, recently opened in Moscow for children who lost their parents. Generations link still exists. Such a pity that there is still the need in orphanages...
