Set in Toronto in 1948, a Jewish family, struggling to recover from the horrors of the war in Europe, finally has cause to rejoice. Ruth is about to be reunited with the only surviving member of her immediate family. But when she goes to Union Station to meet him, the brother she was expecting turns out to be a stranger: an impostor holding her brother’s papers. Suddenly she and the family with whom she lives are forced into an impossible situation: if they abandon this displaced person they risk the possibility of his being deported.
