Masel Tov Cocktail - A Russian-Jewish teen in Germany offers a fiercely comic take on his modern Jewish life.

The Schnoz - When Lydia’s grandma gives her a cheque for a nose job for her 21st birthday, it feels like a dream come true. That is, until she finds herself face to face with the ghost of her great grandmother, whose nose she has inherited.
