CROSSING DELANCEY
A romantic comedy by Susan Sandler

Isabel is a modern young woman who lives alone and works in a book shop. When she is not pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother (Bubbe) in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. This irascible granny and her matchmaker friend have found a “good Jewish catch” for Isabel who isn’t interested in a match with a pickle vendor. As Izzy’s “old world” heritage clashes with her ethnically neutral career world, she must decide who she is and what kind of life she wants to live. Izzy’s reluctant journey offers hope of a blossoming romance and a new beginning.
