dream of America. After years of persecution by Russians, Emma's
family is on their way to their new home. Several families have pooled
their money and are heading for Colorado to begin their lives as farmers.
They believe that they will have a good future there. They can worship
with other Jews and not be looked down on. But is this a reality?
Right from the start, things begin to go wrong. The money they sent
ahead to pay for homes to be built is gone and the homes are not ready.
The families have no money to stay in the hotel and must face life in the
bitter cold and snow. They encounter bears and rats and find hunger
and loneliness. Will they ever be able to fulfill their dream of
establishing a Jewish colony in the mountains of Colorado?
