Synopsis:
Teenage Arik’s attitudes toward life and love undergo seismic shifts during one remarkable summer in the newly formed state of Israel when he begins an apprenticeship under slick professional matchmaker and Holocaust survivor Yankale Bride. Bride, who lives in a district full of other survivors, uses Arik to gather information on potential clients. He prides himself on giving clients “what they need, not what they want,” but his and Arik’s own love lives are far from simple.
