SYNOPSIS: The year is 1989. The Berlin Wall is falling. Samuel Isaacson, a Polish-born Holocaust survivor who once was a promising writer, lives in New York City and translates letters for an import-export company. When a young man of German descent is hired by his employer to work with Mr. Isaacson, the old man is overwhelmed by the ghosts of his tortured past. The relationship the two men carve out is by turn funny, sad, tumultuous, and ultimately life-affirming.
