Product Overview

In the summer of 1957, Phil Dechter, a mildly Jewish callow Columbia College pre-med student, reluctantly finds work as a busboy at a Catskill Mountain resort. He is unaware that the adventure will bring him to grips with his own tenuous yet personal connection to the Holocaust. Through his eyes we see the unfolding of the excitement, love life and cutthroat world of a amountain rata summer. In the background, behind the action of the moment, the stoic presence of vacationing refugees from Hitleras Europe registers with Phil as a significant part of his own heritage. His exposure causes him to grow in insight and compassion, a transformation that ultimately alters his intended direction when a life-changing crisis arises.
