After a wearying journey, Yidel and Naftali arrive in the land of opportunity- America. Together, they take their first steps in the large, foreign land and search desperately for a source of livelihood. Like many jews who immigrated to America in those days, they, too, come up against the difficult test of keeping Shabbos. The difficulties quickly pile up, and the two friends begin to argue more and more bitterly, until they eventually split ways.
Each one continues on alone, but, in a surprising twist of events, they end up meeting again decades later. Their never-ending argument is finally settled, with each of them realizing that Shabbos is, indeed, the source of all blessing.
