Milwaukee Film Says…

Director Brad Lichtenstein (As Goes Janesville, MFF2012) tells a touching story of America’s disappearing Jewish communities and the hardworking people striving to keep them intact and ensure that their cultural legacies are not lost. Come with us to Butte, MT, Laredo, TX, Dothan, AL (where a millionaire offers $50,000 to families willing to relocate and join their dwindling populace), and Latrobe, PA, as we witness more than 1 million American Jews living in small, once-thriving communities, bound together by faith and striving to keep the Jewish spirit alive.
