Dealing with themes of assimilation, this film, set in the early 1900s, focuses on the experiences of an immigrant family in New York City. Gitl (Carol Kane) has just arrived in America from Russia with her son and has come to meet her husband, Jake (Steven Keats), who has been in the States for some time and is comfortably settled. While Gitl struggles to find her place in this country, she clashes with Jake, who has fully embraced their new homeland.

Following the screening, Academy Award®-winning Writer/Director of Simon Wiesenthal Center's Moriah Films, Richard Trank, moderated a discussion with Marisa Silver, daughter of Joan Micklin Silver, the groundbreaking Director of Hester Street, and Carol Kane, Academy Award® nominee for her performance as Gitl.
