Everything is Illuminated
About Everything is Illuminated
Jonathan treks to Ukraine to uncover the truth of a family legend — what happened to the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis? With the help of Alex, his less-than-fluent translator, and Alex’s grandfather, Jonathan’s journey leads him back in time and deep into his own imagination. The trio squabbles and struggles to understand each other and where they’re headed, but their quixotic search brings a vision of the past to vibrant, terrible, charming life before our eyes.
