The origin story behind one of Broadway's most beloved musicals, Fiddler on the Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when "tradition" was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations, and religion were evolving.  For the first time, intimate interviews with the show's creators reveal how the tremendous success and worldwide impact of Fiddler and its subsequent film adaptation is most appropriately viewed through the lens of the social upheaval and change in mid-20th century America.  The documentary explores a variety of international productions of the show, detailing how individuals of many cultures see themselves in the worldwide productions.
