The story of a long-lost book that mysteriously reappears and connects an old man searching for his son with a girl seeking a cure for her mother’s loneliness.The scope of this multi-layered story spans decades and continents. It is filled with romance, suspense and humor, centered on the enduring power of love. “Be it Yiddish from Minsk in the 1940s or NYC in 2006, or a Spanish-language volume from Chile translated via computer, the importance of words runs through the story with a brand of cinematic heft no text message is likely to equal.” —Screen Daily
