A fascinating account of the emigration of tens of thousands of Soviet Jews in the late 1980s, when they were finally allowed to leave the USSR. This film brings to light what history has forgotten: at first the US limited their immigration, stranding Jews in Italy, until the American Jewish community put pressure on Washington. Includes extensive interviews with David Harris of the AJC and Mark Hetfield of HIAS.
