A Jewish father struggles to cope with all the changes going on around him-his three daughters are all getting married "for love", the government is taking a despotic turn, and things aren't simple anymore. What happened to tradition? Will life ever be the same? 12+ for some violence (no blood), scary images, and when the main character is drunk (along with some other guys in a tavern).
