This spirited “road movie” captures 88 year-old Abraham Bursztein’s journey from Argentina to Poland where he grew up. Against his adult children’s wishes, Abraham leaves his adopted country and embarks on a secret trip to Lodz, Poland. While trying to find the Christian friend who saved his life at the end of WWII, he encounters many amazing characters. This drama gains its power from its klezmer-driven score, its comedic touch and its poignant message that shows how compassion can make a difference in the world.
