As the persecution of Jews began in Hitler's Germany, Palestinian activist Peter Bergson came to New York in an attempt to rouse an indifferent community of American Jews to join the fight. Using footage of the era and a never-before-seen 1978 interview with Bergson, the film digs deep into the conflict in the American Jewish community, from the leaders who wanted to avoid making waves to those who would do whatever was possible to rescue Jews across the ocean from the most brutal genocide ever seen on the planet.
