Plot

As described in a film publication, the Levin family escapes from Europe and finds refuge in New York City, where everyone in the family must work. Sara (Ferguson) finds janitor work and meets David (Washburn), nephew of their landlord Rosenblatt (George Siegmann). David falls in love with Sara and teaches her to read and write. He looks forward to when he can open a law office, be free of his uncle, and marry the girl. The uncle intervenes and parts the lovers, and then raises the rent of the Levin family without mercy. The stress causes Sara's mother to become temporarily insane and damage the walls of the apartment, and Rosenblatt takes them to court. Young lawyer David defends the family against his uncle, and the lovers are reunited while the family moves to the suburbs.

Restoration

In October 2009, at the Spanish Synagogue in Prague, Berg Orchestra premiered Jan DuĊĦek's incidental music for Hungry Hearts. In July 2010, the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival presented a restored print of the film, courtesy of the National Center for Jewish Film, the Samuel Goldwyn Company, and the British Film Institute..
