father brought her to America from Poland. Her sister, Lusia, was
shipped to a Nazi concentration camp. After the end of WWII, they are
reunited in New York. Rose is modern, Americanized and independent.
Lusia is Old World and speaks broken English. These two sisters,
separated by the horrors of war, struggle to forge a family bond.
