The Bronx. 1969. Her neighborhood is in upheaval and Rose Balmer’s family is coming apart at the seams. How far will this strong-willed matriarch go to hold her rapidly changing world – and family – together? The Bronx Balmers answers those questions with passion, honesty and humor as two Jewish families struggle with inescapable change and each other.
