First-class pool shark and all-around hustler Jaeckie Zucker is up to his ears in debt, again. He faces jail, divorce and general ruin. When word comes that his mother has died, leaving an inheritance, it's a stroke of luck. But according to his mother's will, before he can cash in Zucker must first reconcile with his long-estranged, Orthodox brother Samuel, who is arriving the next day, family in tow, expecting to sit shiva for seven days. Can Zucker, who has forsaken his religion, and his non-Jewish wife pass as observant? And can he sneak away to compete in a high-stakes pool tournament? Extras include Director Dani Levy on Making a German-Jewish Comedy - Production Notes - Biographies - Photo Gallery.
