Abstract:

The story of two teenage boys living in Brooklyn at the time of the Normandy invasion in 1944 who become best friends despite huge differences in their upbringing. Danny is the son of an orthodox Hasidic Rabbi brought up to accept faith blindly. Reuven comes from a progressive Jewish family whose secular scholar father stands at the forefront of the battle for Israeli statehood. Danny's every moment is devoted to religious study, while Reuven plays jazz piano and is intensely interested in the changing world around him. Their family differences soon force both to make difficult choices.
