Solomon the Accountant is a tender love story set in Toledo, Ohio, in the 1950s. Solomon is a rather nebbishy fellow who falls in love with the beautiful, newly widowed Molly. He is painfully aware of her recent loss, yet she becomes the focal point of his life. He hopes that someday - regardless of how long he has to wait - the broken wings of her spirit will mend and she will soar toward a new future with him. While Solomon wrestles with his feelings for Molly, she is dealing with her own emotional issues. Facing life after the death of her beloved husband less than a year after they stood under the chupah (wedding canopy) seems almost incomprehensible to the young widow. In addition to portraying a touching love story, recreated is a bygone era - a time when a silk tie cost $1.60, a "comfortable house in a good neighborhood" could be purchased for $12,000, and nice Jewish boys still nervously asked the father for his daughter's hand in marriage.
