The Golden Door
Synopsis : A modern fable that captures the spirit of the immigrant experience as one family sheds the comfort of the Old World for the opportunities of the New - a risk that carries no guarantee of success. In a desolate corner of the Sicilian countryside lives a family of peasants who have worked the same land for generations. The hard changeless monotony of daily life is interrupted by tales of the New World where money falls from trees and carrots are ten feet long. Salvatore makes the decision to sell all he has and take his children and aged mother to a better life across the ocean. Aided by a mysterious American woman aboard the ship to America, this family changes during the four difficult weeks of crossing the ocean, which leads to the final judgment: the Island of Tears, Ellis Island. Here, the guardians of the New World will scrutinize the bodies and minds of these prospective citizens, in this wonderful, terrible place where many families will be forced to choose to split up forever. Not all are destined to enter the gates of Heaven.
