In this heartwarming English language film, Eli gets to know his grandfather Samuel when he makes him the subject of an animated art project for school. With dreams of becoming a professional artist, Eli discovers that his Jewish grandpa, a San Diego dry cleaner, was heroically saved from Nazi capture in Germany by a young woman when he was a boy. As they reconnect and strengthen their relationship, the teenager hears the story that hasn’t been told in 75 years. Nice family film for ages 10+.
