In the late 1980’s Soviet Jews were once again given permission to leave the USSR. Unlike their “refusenik” predecessors, those coming to the US in the 1980’s from the Former Soviet Union were now burdened with having to prove “reasonable fear of persecution”. Thousands had their application for refugee status denied, leaving them in Italy – Stateless. This documentary portrays the experience through the eyes of émigrés in the context of politics and Jewish community.
