Chaim Shotsky, a retired mailman in Brooklyn, is an American Tevye who tells his life story to Kelly Burke from Iowa. His exotic tale is rich with vitality

His friends include a philosophical baker, a Holocaust survivor with many secrets, his son and daughter, a matchmaker to end all matchmakers, movie star pigeons and a host of Israelis

Chaim's story, a love song for life, is one of innocence, tragedy, struggle, humor, humanity and ultimately triumph

"Rich and affecting.... A funny, philosophical, lovely evening" ~ N.Y. Times

"A lilting family drama" ~ Entertainment Weekly

"A work brimming with rich ethnic humor" ~ Suburban Town News
