Menashe, an Orthodox Brooklyn Jew, who is widowed, struggles to regain custody of his ten-year-old son Rieven. This, however, can only be successful if he remarries, according to strict religious customs.
Joshua Weinstein spent two years filming the Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish community for a fiction film touching the true documentary.
