The Mancusos are a family struggling to make ends meet in a small farming community in Sicily in 1913.

Life has long been hard for the Mancuso Family, who have lived in the same village for generations, and one day they are visited by a man who claims to be from America.

The man tells them of the wonder and plenty of life in America, an offers to make it possible for them to travel to the New World and find work there.

The Mancusos cautiously accept the offer, but after a dangerous voyage aboard an ocean liner, the family arrives in New York to face a number of new challenges.
