Additional Info

In 1930s Berlin the daughter of a Jewish family falls in love with their black shabbes goy. Fast-forward to the tale of a mixed-race couple in seemingly unprejudiced modern-day Brooklyn, where the same family is coping with a number of calamities. A touching and funny exploration of love, family and friendship.
