A well-done short film
Not too much to say about this one. A good light self-contained 30-minute film. Carol Kane (the actress I tuned in for) doesn't get to do all that much, but fits nicely into the 1940s Jewish mom role.

One oddment is the treatment of the (unsubtitled) Yiddish dialogue in the film. On the Closed Caption track, the Yiddish is in one case simply described in English, in another case transcribed, and in two other cases actually translated! Never seen "hidden subtitles" in the CC track before.
