Their mission: to get as many passing Jews as they can to partake in a “mitzvah,” a good deed or prayer, with them. Enter Jonathan, a fervent young gentile who bonds with Zalmy over Zalmy’s secret love of secular music and who desperately wants to become a Chassid himself. His arrival drives a wedge between the two friends and forces Zalmy to confront his true desire to no longer be confined by the strictures of the Chassidic community. ZALMY: Male. Jewish. Early 20s. A young Chassidic man who lives a secret life listening to rock and roll and going to underground roller discos, Zalmy yearns to experience wider, secular culture. Charismatic and inquisitive. SHMUEL: Male. Jewish. Early 20s. A young, deeply devoted Chassidic man who is enthusiastic about his religion and culture. Socially awkward and naive but sure and steadfast in his principles. JONATHAN Male. Caucasian. 20s. His appearance as a young Wall Street businessman hides his addictive personality and inner fragility. Obsessive, passionate, and excitable, he’s a persuasive talker, perhaps especially when the one he’s convincing is himself. Jonathan sees a fresh start and a meaningful life in Chassidim’s strictures. LEAH Female. 20s. Jonathan’s non-observant Jewish girlfriend, Leah is put-together, straightforward, and loyal. Deeply tolerant and patient but knows her limits.
