    Filmmaker Bob Giges focuses on his spirited 90-year-old grandmother, Belle Demner McCoy, for an intimate portrait of one woman's struggle with the conflicts between family, religion and love. Through an interview with Belle, period photos, and Yiddish and American songs sung by Belle herself, the video offers a look at one person's attempt to reconcile tradition with assimilation.
