The last time Sam saw his brother Jake, they were cruising Brooklyn as one another's ultimate wing man. Years later Sam returns to Brooklyn in need of refuge for him and his pregnant girlfriend, only to find the fun loving Jake has transformed into a studious born-again Jewish scholar. The homecoming incites a clash of brotherhood, divided family loyalties, and a revelation that beyond a love for their aging grandmother, perhaps all they share in common is a past Jake is desperately trying to bury. Their reunion will bring into question faith's superiority to family. Can a change of identity come without the cost of destruction through dogmatic militancy?
