Menachem (Moshe Folkenflik) is a widowed single father working in a supermarket. A devout Orthodox Jew, he is devoted to his 7-year-old daughter Geula (Emily Granin), who needs medical treatment his low wages can’t pay for. He has the notion to contact his old friends and reunite their band. It’s a decision that leads Menachem to reassess his faith, his past and his own ambitions. Exploring themes of parental love, male friendship and the importance of being true to yourself, there’s a gentleness and sincerity about Redemption that belies a story pitching rock ’n’ roll against religion.
