||'Distant Land' follows the life of Joshua Kuperschmid, an intelligent, prejudiced, likeable person and his journey through the 20th century world towards fine understanding. We follow his life from the frontiers of Russia and Poland before World War I, and how it takes him out of his tight-knit community to a strange land on the other side of the world.
Judah Waten boldly promotes the question of assimilation and other issues which today's multiculturalism has to come to grips with. Joshua's story goes to the heart of cultural identity.
