Seth Rogen stars as Herschel Greenbaum, a 1920s struggling laborer who immigrates to America with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The pickle brine preserves him perfectly, and when he emerges in present day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day.



When Herschel awakens in modern New York, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great grandson, Ben, a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.



"An American Pickle," tells the uniquely heartwarming story of Herschel and Ben, two men from different generations, as they learn the true meaning of family.
