Tagline

A classic animated tale of the immigrant experience.

Synopsis

Earlier in this century, an arranged marriage takes place in rural Eastern Europe. Fleeing the threat of war, the young bride and groom arrive in Canada, establish a new life together, and hand down their traditions to the generations that follow. The story is told in pantomime to the strains of an old Yiddish folk song, performed by some of today's best exponents of 'Klezmer' music.
