The Cafeteria Amram Nowak Associates, Inc. ; written for television by Ernest Kinoy ; Amram Nowak, director ; Kirk Simon, producer
Presents an adaptation of a short story by Isaac Bashevis Singer which deals with a young Jewish refugee, Esther, who frequents a cafeteria on the upper Broadway section of New York City in the early 1960s. At the cafeteria, she meets a famous Yiddish writer (a thinly disguised version of Singer himself) and they become involved. The relationship starts out on a romantic note, but as the writer learns more about Esther, he realizes that although she may have survived the Holocaust physically, she is already spiritually dead.
