Baruch, a rabbi’s son, is dreaming of moving away from his small Galician shtetl and becoming an actor, much to his father’s chagrin. Joining a travelling theatre troupe, he soon meets Austrian Archduchess Elisabeth Theresia, who falls for him. With her support he becomes a star of the stage in Vienna, but will he ever be able to reconcile his new-found fame with the Jewish home he left behind? A stunning new restored version of this German-Jewish film classic.
