Everything is Illuminated

A young man arrives in the Ukraine, clutching in his hand a tattered photograph. He is searching for the woman who fifty years ago saved his grandfather from the Nazis.

Unlucky for him, he is aided in his quest by Alex, a translator with an uncanny ability to mangle English into bizarre new forms. Also with him are a “blind” old man haunted by memories of the war; and an undersexed guide dog named Sammy Davis Jr, Jr. What they are looking for seems elusive. A truth hidden behind veils of time, language and the horrors of war.

What they find turns all their worlds upside down…
