The Show

A young Jewish artist is torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his creative promise. As his genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a triumphant and heartbreaking vision of what it means to be an artist.
