Hoping to better understand his decision, Zoe visits the FBI headquarters Washington DC. Next she looks into the life of her father's father Maurice, a Russian Jew. Zoe is moved to discover that, soon after his arrival in Chicago, Maurice suffered a series of personal tragedies and hardships that almost destroyed his American dream. Finally, Zoe travels to Nikolaev in Ukraine where she discovers the original form of her unusual surname and the reason why her family left for America."
