Susan Ferrara's powerful, one-woman homage to her Italian-American heritage

Peasant tells of one family's heartwarming search for the American dream. In 1926, three black-clad Italian sisters come to America with visions of electric light and Jesus and the fate of the family packed in their bags. A Dracula-loving nine-year old wants to know how they got there. As the sisters' journey unfolds, they realize that you can leave one place for another, but that you carry everything with you.

Dale Heinen directs.
