A bar mitzvah mishap causes a major rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem. The accident and responses to it expose both the distance and disagreements between men and women as well as conservatives and progressives. Those frictions serve as the foundation for the film’s deep wisdom and bright humor.
