Young Gitl is getting ready to head from Russia to America -- and she is trying to decide on a new name to adopt when she gets there. At the same time, sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi is preparing a beautiful new monument, Lady Liberty, for her own trek across the sea. When Gitl and Lady Liberty encounter one another, Gitl knows what her new name will be.
