- Synopsis / Plot
- Sam Krichinsky came to America in 1914. Then he came to Baltimore. It was the most beautiful place he had seen in his entire life. Sam and his brothers married, had children and went to work, putting money into a hat to bring over the others: the father, the aunts, the uncles, the cousins. The family came together. The family grew apart. But every year, Sam retells the story of their trials, their triumphs, their caring for one another, because "if you don't tell the children, they don't know." And though details are lost to memory, a legacy is kept alive.
