In New York City, circa 1972, two Jewish brothers are facing hard times running their famous Jewish delicatessen. The brothers fear business will get even tougher with the new competition: a German is opening up his own deli across the street. The past continues to haunt one man’s soul so profoundly he is faced with immeasurable choices no man would want to make.
