Feature and Contest

In His Father's Footsteps

When U.S. troops occupy Germany, friends Jakob and Emmanuelle are saved from the terrible fate of so many in the camps. With the help of sponsors, they make their way to New York. In order not to be separated, they allow their friendship to blossom into love and marriage, and start a new life on the Lower East Side. Decades later, Jakob has achieved success in the diamond business, invested in real estate in New York, and shown his son, Max, that America is truly the land of opportunity. Max chooses a perfect bride to start the perfect American family. But after the birth of children, and with a failing marriage, he can no longer deny that his wife is not the woman he thought she was.
