Directed by Gus Kaikkonen, “The Immigrant” is the heartwarming true story of a life fulfilled in the “Golden Land.” In rural central Texas, 1909, a young Russian-Jewish immigrant has sought refuge in the land of the free. He arrives in America through the port of Galveston and encounters a world of unknowns. He discovers bananas and sells them door to door, eventually managing to buy a cart. Life changes when he pulls his banana cart into the village of Hamilton. Able to speak only Yiddish, alone amid a staunchly Christian community, he begs for shelter. Miracles continue to unfold over the next 30 year as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, and humanity triumphs over fear.
