Movie Info

Set in a Jewish ghetto in Montreal in the 1920s, this is the story of the loving relationship between a young boy and his Orthodox Jewish grandfather. This is a touching story of love and mutual respect between the generations without dwelling too much in sentimentality. In a time and place where no one else seemed to have the time for this young boy, time was all this old man had and the relationship is quite profound.
