Tomas (Peter Reznik) is an 11-year-old Russian stowaway who is bound for America for a very special reason. A hundred years ago, Tomas’ ancestor—Leopold Minton—immigrated to America to start a new life. After becoming a 3D photographer, Leopold sent black and white stereocard pictures of New York City, his new home, to his family back in Russia. His wish was for them to join him in America. Now, armed with these old stereocards and Leopold’s letters, Tomas comes to New York to find the American branch of his family.
