In the summer of 1947, an Irish-Catholic youth is put in peril after he witnesses the beating of a Jewish shopkeeper by an anti-Semitic gangleader. Soon, the boy teams with an elderly rabbi to create a golem─a mythical creature from Hebrew legend─to defeat their common enemy. What follows is a touching story of courage, compassion and friendship. Stephen Rea, Peter Tambakis and Lolita Davidovich star. 105 min. Soundtrack: English.
