The themes are immigration, more specifically Jewish immigration; industrial development in New Jersey; attitudes to the Vietnam war; terrorism and its psychological impact; generational differences; familial concerns such as illness, death and affairs.

The plot, in my view, is more of a backdrop to explore all these issues.
