If nobody wants him, that's fine.He'll just take care of
When his father dies, Dave knows nothing will ever be thesame.
And then it happens. Dave lands in an orphanage -- the cold and
strict Hebrew Home for Boys in Harlem -- far from the life he knew
on the Lower East Side. But he's not so worried. He knows he'll be
okay. He always is. If it doesn't work out, he'll just leave, find
a better place to stay. But it's not that simple.
Outside the gates of the orphanage, the nighttime streets of
Harlem buzz with jazz musicians and swindlers; exclusive parties
and mystifying strangers. Inside, another world unfolds, thick with
rare friendships and bitter enemies. Perhaps somewhere, among it
all, Dave can find a place that feels like home.
