A million-dollar Chagall is stolen from a museum during a singles' cocktail hour. The unlikely thief, former child prodigy Benjamin Ziskind, is convinced that the painting once hung in his parents' living room. This work of art opens a door through which we discover his family's startling history from an orphanage in Soviet Russia where Chagall taught to suburban New Jersey and the jungles of Vietnam.
