Tiger Within: An unlikely friendship between a troubled, homeless teen, and a Holocaust survivor, sparks larger questions of ignorance, fear, lies, family, love, forgiveness, and our divided world at large in this moving story. Taught that the Holocaust is fiction, the teen is surprised to learn that the survivor, played by Ed Asner in his final role, experienced the horrors firsthand and that his children were murdered in the camps. Following through on a promise made to his deceased wife to erase the lingering hate in his heart, Samuel makes it his mission to befriend the misguided teen. For if he can forgive her, he can master his anger, and if she can forgive herself, she can be free.
