This dazzling Academy Awards nominee tells the story of a Lithuanian immigrant, who left the stetl to escape the virulent anti-Semitism there and became a recognized painter in the New World.

His daughter pays tribute to her father by recreating his dazzling painting on film using innovative animation techniques. This film glows with love of family, love of art, and an appreciation of life s possibilities.
