Description

Based on the writing of Sholem Aleichem, this is a lyrical story of love and friendship in a Ukrainian shtetl at the beginning of the 20th century. From a young age, Shimek, a fanciful boy with a vivid imagination, goes on great adventures with Buzya, the solemn girl next door. But Shimek doesn’t fully recognize his feelings for Buzya until he learns she is about to be married. After years away, Shimek returns to the village where he grew up, hoping that Buzya may feel the same.
