A group of first generation Americans of Soviet Jewish background travel to Ukraine to explore the Jewish history of the region. They tour former shtetls, walk through the old Jewish neighborhoods in Kiev, Odessa and Lvov, meet members of remaining Jewish communities and visit sites of mass executions.
