Many people know the photos of Fred Stein but few know his name. His street scenes of Paris in the 1930s and New York in the 1940s and his portraits of famous personalities are well-known. This film seeks out this forgotten photographer. Who was this man who fled the Nazis, first to Paris and then to New York, and who, despite such upheaval, had a positive, often humorous view of the world? His son Peter traces his father's footsteps in a very personal film.
