Earlier in this century, an arranged marriage takes place in rural Eastern Europe. Fleeing the threat of war, the young bride and groom arrive in Canada, establish a new life together, and hand down their traditions to the generations that follow. The story is told in pantomime to the strains of an old Yiddish folk song. A transcript of the song, in English and Yiddish, is available.
