Set in the forties. A young Jewish boy is called on by his parents to help a young girl come out of her shell, imposed after she watched her father die at the hands of the Nazis.
After admitting to his parents that he was playing stickball instead of visiting Naomi on the fourth day, Alan throws himself face-up on the couch and puts a newspaper over his face while his shirttails, which are not tucked in, fall back revealing his stomach (at 0:33:39 on the Feature Films for Families version and again at 0:34:25). As his father comes to the couch Alan's shirttails are neatly arranged, covering his stomach and belt (at 0:34:36).
In 2003 Feature Films for Families released an edited version of 'Alan & Naomi' on both VHS tape and DVD with a 92m:01s run time (despite "approx. 87 minutes" on the DVD case). A 28 second Feature Films for Families logo clip was added at the beginning as was a 5 second "CINAR Presents" screen, replacing the original "LEUCADIA FILM CORPORATION AND THE MALTESE COMPANIES Present" screen. Nothing was cut from the ending credits, but a 5 second CINAR logo clip and a 13 second Feature Films for Families screen were added after the original ending credits for a total of 51 seconds of video added, leaving 91m 10s of the original 95m 31s length. In general, Feature Films for Families edits out of the sound track and/or the frames any language, violence, or behavior that parents might find awkward to explain to their young children.
