Menachem, a former front man for a rock band, is now a widower and a religious Jew. His dilemma: His six-year old daughter Geula is ill and he must find a way to fund the expensive treatments. His choice: Reunite the band for one last tour. The film digs into Menachem’s existential and everyday turmoil and the tensions between his past secular life and his current religious one. But saving his daughter (whose name is Hebrew for “redemption”) is a goal that supersedes all else. Finding a new connection to his past and to his music can pave the road to his own redemption—and his daughter’s hope for a future.
