In pre-revolutionary Russia, a Jewish peasant contends with marrying off three of his daughters while growing anti-Semitic sentiment threatens his village.  At the beginning of the twentieth century, Jews and Orthodox Christians live in the little village of Anatevka in the pre-revolutionary Russia of the Czars. Among the traditions of the Jewish community, the matchmaker arranges the match and the father approves it. The milkman Tevye (Jacob Ortiz) is a poor man that has been married for twenty-five years with Golde (Sage Saling) and they have five daughters. When the local matchmaker Yente (Alyssa Edu) arranges the match between his older daughter Tzeitel (Kelly Yatsko) and the old widow butcher Lazar Wolf (Aedan Molina), Tevye agrees with the wedding. However Tzeitel is in love with the poor tailor Motel Kamzoil and they ask permission to Tevye to get married that he accepts to please his daughter. Then his second daughter Hodel (Caroline Chase ) and the revolutionary student Perchik decide to marry each other and Tevye is forced to accept. When Perchik is arrested by the Czar troops and sent to Siberia, Hodel decides to leave her family and homeland and travel to Siberia to be with her beloved Perchik…
