This stirring film is based on a story by Shalom Aleichem, one of the greatest Jewish storytellers of all time.
It is the story of Tevye, the village milkman and his family.It depicts his struggle to remain true to his religion as well as to survive, in the midst of often hostile non - jewish neighbors. But... alas! Tevye's youngest daughter falls in love with a non - jew and is therefore banished from the family ...
His struggle is one, that jews throughout the centuries have shared... making it as relevant today as it was then ... This is a film for all the ages !!
