Description:

For young Reuven Malter, it is a time of testing. With his teachers, he struggles for recognition of his boldly radical methods of scholarship. With his old friend Danny -- who himself has abandoned his place in a rabbinical dynasty - he battles to save a sensitive boy imprisoned by genius and rage. Reuven painfully grows into a guardian of the ancient, sacred promise to his people while earning his hard-fought right to make his own beginning.
