A young American Jewish man goes on a quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather--in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazi invasion. The journey begins as a comic nightmare, with an eccentric trio of paid “expert” guides sorely lacking in expertise; a cranky grandfather who insists on bringing his unruly seeing-eye dog to help him drive; and his over-enthusiastic grandson, whose fractured command of English, passion for retro American pop culture, and inability to shut up threaten to make the worst of every situation. But what starts out as the tour from hell turns into a surprisingly meaningful journey--with an unexpected and powerful series of revelations that will indelibly change all of their lives
