Synopsis

A Secular Jewish family, dealing with their Grandma Sophie's death, is experiencing a very busy week. Much to her son Joseph's chagrin, her husband Sol has cremated her and insists on carrying her urn everywhere with him. At the same time, Joseph's free-spirited ex-wife Zoe shows up for the funeral. Their son Daniel also makes a surprise appearance: he has been in Israel for two years studying to be a Hassidic Jew, unbeknownst to any of the family. And if that wasn't enough excitement, cousin Albert from the wrong side of the tracks, makes a surprise visit with outlandish requests of his own.
