WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Meet the Nowaks of Buffalo, NY. They have always known they were special, ever since the night Clara's father, an immigrant from war-torn Poland, had a miraculous vision in his barbershop. Keeping the faith nearly 65 years later in their gritty, deteriorating neighborhood are Clara and her grown children: Jimmy, a garbage collector, Bev, a ketchup bottler, and Ruth, who would be a struggling actress if she could only get a part. But now Ruth has stopped going to mass, Jimmy is dating a Jewish girl, and a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel with unexpectedly dramatic results. A marvelous new comedy about family, faith, and adjusting to life's surprises, by the celebrated author of Over the Tavern.
