From the creator of Shtisel, and the producers of The Kindergarten Teacher and The Women’s Balcony, comes an intimate exploration of lives at the fringes of Bnei Brak’s ultra-Orthodox community.

Nahman drives beggars to affluent homes, and coaches them to spin tall tales that inspire generosity—he gets a cut of the take, and keeps a record of their stories. He wiles away the rest of his night with questionable members of his pious society in makeshift casinos and dining halls.

When his wife suddenly leaves, Nahman is faced with the responsibility of taking care of his nine-year-old daughter alone
