David (Jeffrey Lynas) is a six-year-old Jewish boy growing up in Montreal in the 1920s. His father, Harry (Len Birman), a self-consumed inventor who doesn’t work and yearns for assimilation and acceptance, is not religious. His loving grandfather Zaida (Yossi Yadin) is devout, with his heart still back on the old continent. Every Sunday David and Zaida travel on an old horse-drawn cart through the alleyways in a Jewish ghetto of Montreal calling out to residents asking to collect their old junk collect scrap metal. While on these journeys his grandfather preaches Judaism, allowing David to come to his own conclusions on his Jewish identity and faith. Director: Ján Kadár. (102 min)
