The film explores the intergenerational trauma between father Sam, a Holocaust survivor, and his son Richie, a successful businessman. Acclaimed as a "fascinating and touching portrait of a father and a son, with the camera as a psychoanalytical medium, - an unexpectedly optimistic film," Mr. Rakowski is sure to touch all who see it.
