This film is set in the ultra-orthodox Israeli community in which writer-director David Volach was raise. This debut film portrays childhood at its most transcendent and fundamentalism at its most intimately corrosive. Rabbi Eidelman (Assi Dayan), a pious, respected elder in a cloistered Hassidic enclave, tells his wonderstruck only son Menahem (Ilan Griff). But at an age where life prompts questions increasingly outside the confines of doctrine, Menahem unwittingly runs afoul of his father's inflexibility. Mindful of her marriage vows but accepting of her son's boyish curiosity, Rabbi Eidelman's wife Esther (Sharon Hacohen-Bar) is caught in the middle.
