Menashe is an unlucky employee of the grocery store, which is in the heart of the Hasidic community of New York. Since the death of his wife Leah, he is struggling to make ends meet and be a good father for son Riven. Tradition forbids Menashe to raise a child alone, and the boy is adopted by the closest relative of Menashe. The hero remains one on one with a broken heart. But soon his rabbi gives Menashe a whole week alone with his son before the monument to Leah is erected. This is a chance for a man to prove that he is a truly believing person and a good father, and also to return respect.
