Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by Jane Yolen. During Passover, a jaded NY Jewish teenager shows complete disinterest to her aunt and uncle's retelling of Holocaust stories. She soon has a ''Twilight Zone'' experience and finds herself transported to a village in Poland in 1941 which is liquidated by the Nazi. She survives the terror of the concentration camp and returns to the present with a deepened feeling for the past and an abiding respect for her family's history.
