David Blumenfeld and his family emigrated from Tukums to Minnesota in 1883. Nearly 130 years later several of his descendants went back to Tukums to find David's home town, and to explore the truth behind the stories they found in a box of his unpublished writings that had been hidden for more than 50 years.

This movie is made from a lecture by David Blumenfeld's great grandson Frederick Hertz at the San Francisco Bay Area Genealogical Society on September 9, 2012.
