Isaac Bashevis Singer, the famous Yiddish writer and Nobel Prize winner wrote with a "harem" of dozens of translators behind him. Beyond simple translation, these women were a vital source of his creativity. The inspiration he drew from them came in many forms, often mixing romance with professional aspirations. Today nine remain to tell his story.

Intimate, poignant interviews and exclusive archival footage combine to portray the unknown story of an author who charmed and enchanted his audiences, just like he charmed and enchanted his translators. A film about both the very art of translation and one of the great figures of twentieth century literature.

Director Asaf Galay will appear for a discussion and Q&A after the screening.
