Heartfelt and charming
Abraham Bursztein, an 88 year-old-Jewish tailor, escapes his family in Argentina who are intent on sending him to a nursing home. He journeys to Europe in hope of finding a friend who saved him from certain death at the end of World War II. With assistance from a roll call of generous strangers, the sharply-dressed suit maker makes his way to Poland, undeterred by travel mishaps, family foibles and geographical obstacles in this bittersweet movie.
