A young Jewish American, Jonathan Safran Foer (Elijah Wood - The Lord Of The Rings trilogy), travels to the Ukraine in hopes of finding the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis during World War II. Jonathan is aided in his search by Alex Perchov (Ukranian-born singer Eugene Hutz), a naïve Ukrainian student who serves as Jonathan's translator; Alex's grandfather (Boris Leskin), also named Alex; and the old man's flatulent seeing-eye dog, Sammy Davis, Junior, Junior.

As this motley group of seekers journeys across Eastern Europe's devastated landscape, disturbing facts about Nazi atrocities and the extent of Ukrainian complicity are unearthed, and these discoveries profoundly affect the lives of all when Everything Is Illuminated.

Based on the book Everything Is Illuminated: A Novel by Jonathan Safran Foer.
