Synopsis: When the famous Dutch painting “Jewess on a Street in Amsterdam” arrives at a museum in Halifax, a disturbed young woman abandons her life in favor of the one she imagines for the painting’s subject–even as being a Jew in Amsterdam becomes more perilous as the clouds of World War II gather in Europe.
