Narrated by Mayim Bialik and featuring the voices of Lieve Schreiber, Jason Alexander, Lake Bell, and Ben Shenkman, The Conspiracy is an animated film about the biggest lie ever told: Jews are plotting to take over the world. Behind the torch-bearing chants of "Jews will not replace us" is an age-old myth. 

As we follow this myth from the fringe to the mainstream, three Jewish families become scapegoats, their names forever linked to the notion that Jews are a monolithic group set on world domination. The film uses the first-hand accounts of three prominent Jewish families, the Dreyfuses, Warburgs, and Bronsteins, as the conspiracy develops and the lives of these families are woven further into its net.
