2018

Seth and Jozen, a gay American couple, organize their son Angel’s Bar Mitzvah in Israel. They choose Lily, a larger-than-life Israeli woman as their event planner, and bring Hillary, Seth’s mother, along with them. They hope this Bar Mitzvah will be the crazy rainbow-themed party they want for the gay son they want. But things will not go as planned, and they may have to accept that their son is… different.

Well, that was the plan anyway.
