Family is Always Worth Fighting For

Synopsis: The film takes place in the heart of New York’s ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community. Menashe, a kind, hapless grocery store clerk, offers a thoughtful portrait of the challenges of parenthood following his wife’s death, and the struggle to be a man and a father. Joshua Z. Weinstein’s Brooklyn-based Yiddish drama is an authentic, tightly written, and compelling story.
