Deep in the heart of New Yorks ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, a widower battles for custody of his son.
Menashe is a kind-hearted but hapless grocery store clerk. After his wife passes away, tradition prohibits him form raising his son, Lieven, alone and so he is to be adopted by his strict uncle, leaving Menashe heartbroken.
Menashe is tender drama offering an intriguing look into unfamiliar culture with a universal tale about faith and the price of parenthood.
