A Polish rabbi wanders through the Old West on his way to lead a synagogue in San Francisco. On the way he is nearly burnt at the stake by Indians and almost killed by outlaws.
The film's opening title card reads "(Poland 1850)".
This is a very big country. I'll tell you what I think is the best thing. I'll take San Francisco; you take the rest of America. And if you ever come back to this place again, I don't think you're gonna get off so easy.
Avram: Now, get the hell out of here...
When Avram and Tommy are "running" from the posse, Avram waits to get on the horse until the sun goes below the mountain, yet when the pair begins to ride away, they and their horses cast full shadows as if exposed to sunlight.
