Pinhas and his mother are new immigrants from Russia. His mother barely makes a living working night shifts and devotes her spare time to an affair she has with a married man. On the third floor of their building lives a religious family. Pinhas is drawn to the warmth and unity that characterize them and meets a girl his age, and her older brother, who slowly introduces him to religion.
