Menachem, a former frontman for a rock band, is now religious and a father to a six-year-old. When his daughter is diagnosed with cancer, he must find a creative solution to fund the expensive treatments. He reunites his band to play Orthodox weddings. The journey to save his daughter opens old wounds, but allows him to reconnect with his secular past and his music. (104 min) Screening will be followed by conversation with Gershom Gorenberg.
