This unusual silent drama by director Eleanor Antin is supposedly a rediscovered ''lost'' film. In the tale, Zevi is a Yiddish poet who falls for Rukheleh, the pretty daughter of a merchant living in a Jewish shtetl. While the poor writer wants to marry Rukheleh after getting her pregnant, her parents won't allow it, making for plenty of conflict. Meanwhile, Zevi's troubled sister, Sooreleh, contends with her own misfortune.
