Plot Summary

Frictions develop when Yisroel "Izzy" Jonigkeyt, a Chassidic Jew from Crown Heights, travels to San Francisco to visit Polish-born Catholic friend Marek Wisniewski with the intent of discovering why a Bay Area art-world iconoclast named Harry Kierk seeks to destroy a lifetime's worth of his own work. As the visit progresses, Izzy and Marek discover for the first time that complex historical baggage impinges on their curious friendship and, soon, they begin to understand why Kierk is driven towards destruction. Continued encounters with Marek's vaguely anti-Semitic cousin Irek (who is their only gateway to contact Kierk) only compound these tensions. Written by ConFluence-Film

Trivia There is a sequence of the film shot at 770 Eastern Parkway, the worldwide headquarters of Chabad Lubavitch. With actor Joshua Safdie and actor-director Daniel Kremer, the filmmakers snuck cameras into 770 and shot the sequence guerrilla style. They were featured in a Lubavitch news service the very next day. See more »
