In the 1890’s, the young, kind-hearted but naive Stavros lived in Anatolia but dreamed of a better life - specifically in America – where he could make his parents proud by his grand accomplishments. Instead, his parents, with most of their money, sent Stavros to Constan- tinople to help fund the carpet shop owned by his first cousin. Of course, once in Constan- tinople, his resolve to earn the money for a third class fare to the US, made him stronger than ever.
