Ruchama, a wigmaker from an ultra-orthodox Brooklyn enclave, journeys into Manhattan for inspiration, frequenting a newsstand where she flips through forbidden fashion magazines. An elderly Jew with a long, white beard reluctantly works as a department store Santa Claus every year – until he can take it no longer. And a Hasidic man, frustrated by his wife’s lack of interest, gets a dispensation from a rabbi to see a prostitute for the relief of unbearable urges.
