An indie-rock musical with Russian Folk influences, Fireflies tells the story of a russian/jewish immigrant trying to support his old world family and community in NYC. Wrestling with the pressures of a dream job and his newfound love for a singer/songwriter/waitress, he is forced to question his values, allegiances, and abilities to live up to his own and others’ expectations. The story is about chasing an elusive American Dream, and the timely lessons of love and loss.
