This animation is based on a letter that director Susan Shulman’s grandfather wrote to her grandmother in 1900. This is but one of hundreds of pages penned from that time. They both immigrated to Montreal from Russia. He was 18 in 1900 and she followed in 1902 at the age of 20. An immigrants tale of courage and love.
