Directed by Yehonatan Indursky (Israel, 2017, 92 min.). Digital. Hebrew with English subtitles. Massachusetts premiere.

Nahman Ruzumni exists on the periphery of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak. His job—coaching poor men seeking handouts on whom to solicit, and how to tell their stories to inspire maximum philanthropy—blurs the line between disreputable and altruistic. When his wife suddenly leaves him, he has no choice but to bring his nine-year-old daughter with him as he drives his clients from house to house. Nahman finds himself sharing his strange, unconventional world and learning to tell a different kind of story—his own.
