Highly recognizable actor-writer Brooklyn-born Vincent Schiavelli (One flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus) travels to the Sicilian mountain village of his ancestors where his grandfather had been a cook. Through recipes, stories and animated interviews with his closest friends, viewers discover the city-state of Polizzi Generosa, whose emigrant community established itself in Brooklyn where many still live. Schiavelli even wrote a book - 'Brucculinu, America.' What draws the actor to Polizzi whose remarkable history and the nature of its people, granted untold freedom by a succession of kings, redounds through the ages in their creativity? Martin Scorsese's people come from here as does Dolce of Dolce-Gabbana. This is a compelling film for residents of Brooklyn and everywhere.
