Documentary inspired by the narrator’s grandfather, the film tells the real life story of a Polish immigrant trying to get to the US but inadvertently finding himself in Caborca, a small town in Sonora, Mexico. It’s a moving and uplifting story about an individual, his strength, and his commitment to maintain his faith in the face of incredible obstacles including that he was the only Jew in a town of Catholics, and unable to speak the language.
Followed by Q&A with narrator David Chait and Dr. Scott Levin, ADL Mountain States Regional Director.
