THE STORY: 74 GEORGIA AVENUE, is a deeply affecting examination of the bizarre developments that follow when a successful (but deeply unhappy) white businessman, Marty, decides to spend a few days in his boyhood home, in what has now become a black neighborhood. He encounters Joseph, the son of the now deceased black man who was once the janitor of the once thriving synagogue that Marty attended as a child, and whose recollections of those long ago years parallel his own. And, magically, these years are relived, as Joseph "becomes" the long-dead figures who peopled Marty's boyhood and who, in memory, have drawn him to his journey into the past.
