Deep in the heart of Brooklyn’s ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, a recently-widowed grocer battles to maintain custody of his son following the death of his wife - against strict traditions that dictate a child cannot be raised in a motherless home. A fascinating glimpse into a notoriously private community, and a tender and engaging study of fatherhood and father-and-son relationships.
