Summary:
This film, one of the earliest Yiddish sound films, portrays the lives of Eastern European shtetl Jews transplanted to turn-of-the-century New York's Lower East Side. The bustling sweatshop and overcrowded tenement serve as the backdrop for a rich thematic blend of romantic intrigue, old and young love, realization of financial success, disintegration of the traditional Jewish family, early struggles of the garment worker's union movement, and the clash of old world values and new world dreams.
