    [synopsis] => For Stefan and Alexandra Ivarin, who moved from Russia to America nearly twenty years ago, becoming "American" is a lifelong project Stefan and Alexandra Ivarin emigrated to America at the end of the nineteenth century. Russian Jewish socialists, the Ivarins are now established in a Long Island home designed, somewhat haphazardly, by Stefan. Despite their attempts at assimilation, the Ivarins find themselves still struggling to find a balance between their Russian roots and their American lives, between their past and their future-and those of their children. Based in part upon Hobson's own childhood, First Papers is a tender portrait of the tension between embracing a foreign culture full of opportunity while longing for a lost homeland.
