Giuseppe's father has an important job interview during the day which shall set the course of the future for the family, who is navigating the threshold of bankruptcy. It is Giuseppe's intention to return quickly, before Nonna awakens from her nap; but the boy quickly realizes he does not know the vicinity as well as he had thought. This takes him on a journey throughout Little Italy, guided by a wide cast of characters into various restaurants, shops, and eventually a church. Here he meets Father Moritz, SJ, who guides him home to safe passage. Meanwhile across the street, at Rodham University, academic politics reign, thus setting up a dichotomy of innocence and wonder beside pathology and ideology. Following up on the success of A Child's Christmas in Williamsburg, Which Way to Nonna's House? is a snapshot of Italian-American life, faith, and culture in the Bronx Little Italy which confronts the blights and evils of our time in order to have the wisdom of life in the spirit prevail.
