Synopsis: En 1936, los Schwart, una familia de inmigrantes desesperada por escapar de la Alemania nazi, se instala en una pequeña ciudad de Estados Unidos. El padre, un profesor de instituto, es rebajado al único trabajo al que tiene acceso: sepulturero y vigilante de cementerio. Los prejuicios locales y la debilidad emocional de los Schwart suscitan una terrible tragedia familiar. Rebecca, la hija del sepulturero, comienza entonces su sorprendente peregrinación por la «América profunda», una odisea de riesgo erótico e intrépida imaginación que la obligará a reinventarse a sí misma. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In 1936 the Schwarts, an immigrant family desperate to escape Nazi Germany, settle in a small town in upstate New York, where the father, a former high school teacher, is demeaned by the only job he can get: gravedigger and cemetery caretaker. After local prejudice and the family's own emotional frailty result in unspeakable tragedy, the gravedigger's daughter, Rebecca, begins her astonishing pilgrimage into the heart of America, an odyssey of erotic risk and ingenious self-invention, and, in the end, a bittersweet—but very "American"—triumph.
