On a lonely slanted roof, a hunched figure plays the fiddle for the people of Anatevka. But this fiddler did not always sit on the roof. Come to think of it, he didn’t always have a fiddle to play either. Based on Sholem Aleichem’s short story “The Fiddle”, this is the story of Sholom, the boy that was destined to become the Fiddler on the Roof.Language: Yiddish. Subtitles: Polish and English.
