One of the leading lights of contemporary Israeli cinema, Joseph Madmony (Restoration), returns for this spiritually rousing, emotionally intelligent story of exhilaration and faith.

Menachem is a middle-aged single father struggling to finance his six-year-old daughter’s medical treatment with his meager income as a grocery clerk. He had fronted a rock n’ roll band until personal tragedies prompted his retirement from music, and the adoption of a devoted Hasidic practice that set him apart from his old friends.

Playing music promises to be more lucrative than stocking shelves, but would a return to singing be compatible with a life of worship?
