Life is tough for Simon Grünberg. Since the divorce, the 12-year old has lived in turn with his Mum or Dad. And if that wasn't enough, he now has to sacrifice his foreskin. That's the way his religious Dad sees it. Simon's Mum Hannah (Lavinia Wilson) is as fed up with her husband's pious posturing as Simon, who won't cave in to his father's demands and falls in love with the new rabbi Rebecca (Catherine De Léan). He resolves to conquer the object of his desires without further ado. His biggest rival, however, seems to be his own father. Simon begins to fight.
