As a Jewish boy growing up in Plymouth, Pennsylvania, Sidney Gerstein is constantly chided about his name and bullied by anti-Semantics. Finally, he is given a chance to start over when his family moves to Depot, New Jersey. But with little experience outside Plymouth, Sidney's path to adulthood becomes more challenging than he imagined. Amid tumultuous 1960s America, Sidney dreams of attending college to earn a doctorate degree. But also with maturity comes a desire to learn more about life and his ethnic heritage in a post-Holocaust world. When Sidney embarks on a quest for answers, his path eventually crosses with Mort Poplowsky, a death camp survivor who denies his Jewish identity. As Mort begins revealing his tragic past to Sidney and others, they must work together in an attempt to not only understand his compelling story, but also change his views toward American society.
