In 1940s Brooklyn, an accident throws Reuven Malther and Danny Saunders together. Despite their differences, the young men form a deep friendship. Together they negotiate adolescence, family conflicts, the crisis of faith engendered when Holocaust stories begin to emerge in the U.S., loss, love and the journey to adulthood. The intellectual and spiritual clashes between fathers, between each son and his own father and between the two young men provide a unique backdrop for this exploration of fathers, sons, faith, loyalty and, ultimately the power of love.
