A bachelor Haredi (ultra-Orthdox) and his widow father share an apartment, a cynical humor and a quest for love and a little motherly warmth in the cold world of god. This delicious gentle drama follows a shy yeshiva boy and his closely-knit, argumentative family. He meets an older widow just as the family is trying to marry him off, while his widowed father has a little fling of his own. The lives of the extended Shtisel family, a warm and broken Haredi family, integrated in the big and desperate love story. Forget everything you thought you knew about the Haredi life, and prepare to be charmed.
