Young Bill, Yossela Margulies, is thrown into a chasm of hate, murder, escape, and finally liberation. Yossela finds himself in America where he is told dreams can come true. Penniless and alone, he embarks on a journey that takes him from the east coast to mid-America to Texas seeking that dream. Struggling with the language, poverty, loneliness and unbridled guilt and pain, he vows to keep the promises made to his family. The young immigrant, determined to succeed, follows the lessons of his father, listens to his intuition and works relentlessly. He finds mentors in unexpected places and he battles the doubt that continues to surface - how could a poor, uneducated, foreign man find his place among others in a land of wealth and freedom? Living Longer Than Hate: A Story of Survival & Success enlightens us in the lessons of faith, family support systems, belief in the American Dream, perseverance, tolerance, forgiveness, and charity, and it gives us hope of survival and success, no matter the odds.
