Multi-talented performer-writer Deb Filler stars in this adaptation of her autobiographical off-Broadway solo show about her life as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Through facial expressions, accents, and mannerisms, Filler transforms herself into character after character based on the various members of her far-flung family. She recounts her experiences growing up in white Anglo-Saxon New Zealand and tells of visiting the sites of Nazi death camps with her father, Sol Filler. The film takes its audience from laughter to sadness.... and back again.
