Yitzy has a difficult adjustment to a new city and a new school. He misses his old friends and old neighborhood. But a special teacher at his new school helps him over the rough, first few weeks.
Pretty soon he's made new friends and even has a new hobby - radio controlled sailboats. It's not too long before his new hobby lands him in trouble, deep trouble. It's sink or swim time for Yitzy. Who will be there with a life preserver?
