In this finely textured coming-of-age drama, a single immigrant mother and her son are deeply affected by their relationship with a religious neighbour.
Twelve-year-old Pinhas is mostly alone while his Ukrainian mom works to make ends meet. When the boy asks permission to join classmates in bar mitzvah studies, frazzled Tamara, who resists religion, refuses. To her dismay, Pinhas turns to their religious neighbour for help, the new relationship changing all three lives in unforeseen ways.
