Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This colorful musical comedy finds a young Jewish boy trying to save up enough money for a one-way ticket to America at the beginning of the 20th century. His brother tries to make money with a series of inventions which inevitably fail. Featured in the film are fourteen songs by Yohanan Zaray, music that captures the oppressive atmosphere of turn-of-the-century Eastern Europe. Choreography is kept to a minimum in this film where the heroes are all children.
