What begins as a joyous celebration turns into disaster, when the women’s balcony at an Orthodox synagogue collapses during a bar mitzvah party, injuring a number of people and leaving the senior rabbi in a state of shock. Stepping in to assume authority in the face of crisis, the young and charismatic Rabbi David first appears as a savior. His teachings soon divide the close-knit Sephardic congregation along gender lines, laying the ground work for this good-hearted tale to speak truth to patriarchal power.
