Part documentary and part performance, the film weaves portraits of two beloved personalities – Sholom Aleichem and the late Theodore Bikel. An icon of modern Jewish literature, Sholom Aleichem created dozens of beloved characters who offer a window into prewar Eastern European shtetl life. Theodore Bikel played Sholom Alecheim’s Tevye the Milkman more than 2,000 times and was the foremost interpreter of the great Yiddish author.
