About The Pin

Two young people find love while in hiding during WWII. The boy, now an old man, works as a Shomer, a religious watchman responsible for guarding the souls of the dead before their burial. One night he comes face-to-face with his long lost love when her dead body is wheeled into the morgue where he works. As he is presented with a final chance at redemption, he recalls the brief but intense circumstances of their love affair.

Told entirely in Yiddish, with English subtitles, this story of love and loss, regret and redemption will be sure to stay in your memory.
