Summary
In this tribute to the 1927 Al Jolson film classic, Cantor Rabinowitz is upset that son Joey has no interest in becoming a synagogue cantor, a family tradition for five generations. Worse yet, he's left home to pursue a career as a jazz singer and comedian, no laughing matter to his father. After struggling for years, Joey is about to get his big break. But when the cantor suddenly falls gravely ill, Joey grapples with filling in for his ailing father, or seizing the opportunity to be a star
