Shmuel, a Hasidic cantor in Upstate New York, distraught by the untimely death of his wife, struggles to find religious solace, while secretly obsessing over how her body will decay.

"Shawn Snyder makes a strikingly original and winsome feature debut."
Andrea Gronvall - CHICAGO READER

" Original Score: 2.5/4 [T]here's something in the relationship between these two partnerless men - their yearning for connection - that feels, beneath the jokes, very real and very recognizable."
Michael O'Sullivan - WASHINGTON POST

"Shawn Snyder's film about a cantor grieving for his wife and pondering her body's decomposition is earnest to the point of piety. It's also bawdy, and at moments, very funny."
David D'Arcy - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
