Trailer:

Enter the funny, larger-than-life world of Yiddish Theater today through this documentary film about the amazing woman who has kept the oldest running Yiddish Theater in America alive.  Zypora Spaisman is a Holocaust survivor who conquers all hearts in her passion for art, life and Yiddish.

This heartwarming story of one unique woman's struggle portrays the fight of both an old art form to stay relevant and an old actress to find meaning and a stage in a society that worships youth. 

Shot in real time in one of the coldest winters in NEW YORK over the eight days of Hanukkah, Zypora's theater has one week to raise funding to keep their show going. Many miracles occur during this week. But will they be enough to save this critically acclaimed Yiddish show?

A must see film for anyone who loves theater!

The film has rare interviews with some of the key players in the Yiddish Theater world today. Among them Yiddish legends like Shifra Lerer, Felix Fibich, Seymour Rechzeit and many more. Also in the film are expert Zalmen Mlotek who heads the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene and Scholars Dovid Katz and Nahma Sandrow.
