Plot Summary
Every summer, some Holocaust survivors, mostly Polish Jews, gather at the Four Seasons Lodge in the Catskill Mountains. After moving to America after the war, the survivors sought each other out to create a large family to help fill the void left by those they lost. Though many of them are well into their 90s, at the Four Seasons they play poker, cook, dance and tell jokes, creating for one another a loving experience that is the antithesis of the nightmare they survived.

    Poignant look at old age, sadness, and the legacy of the Holocaust, as well at the immense will to live of the survivors. Amazingly intimate and totally engrossing.

    This was a tender and sensitive account of true survivors, not just of the holocaust, but of all life's adversities and challenges. It is a must-see! Fern Amper

    Four Seasons Lodge that was a bungalow colony in Ellenville, NY,the Catskills. Holocaust survivors who come up every year in the summer to get away from the city and keep a tight community. Director Andrew Jacobs told a poignant story through these survivors and how they got past losing family members, all alone coming to America after being liberated at ages 16 to 19 years old with nothing. Film was very well done and anyone ever going to the Catskills to bungalow colonies will relate.
