Way cool 90s teen Hannah has no use for her familys boring Jewish traditions—until the Passover Seder when she "opens the door" for the prophet Elijah, only to find herself transported suddenly into the Holocaust and a new understanding of her Jewish identity.
The gritty, powerful camp scenes are seldom physically violent, focusing more on wrenching psychological abuse. Based closely on Jane Yolens’s award-winning novel (for grades 6–9), the film stars Kirsten Dunst, Mimi Rogers, and Louise Fletcher, and is introduced by Dustin Hoffman.
