Drawing on a wealth of previously unseen archival photographic and film footage from over fifty public and private collections, filmmaker Maria Iliou tells the fascinating history - on both sides of the Atlantic - of Greek immigrants to the United States. Featuring interviews with historian Alexander Kitroeff, former Maryland Senator Paul Sarbanes, and other scholars and guests, she brings these stories and photographs to life, creating insightful commentary on the value of diversity and collective memory.
