A Hasidic Jewish woman in Brooklyn flees to Berlin from an arranged marriage and is taken in by a group of musicians -- until her past comes calling.
Born and raised in a New York Hasidic community, Esty struggles after a fruitless first year of marriage. She runs away to Berlin and finds new freedom.
Esty's Berlin friends challenge many of her old beliefs but also provide a safe space to explore new ways of being. Yanky and Moishe search for Esty.
As Moishe secretly gathers evidence against Esty, she realizes she needs help to audition for the scholarship she desperately needs.
Moishe brutally confronts Esty, sending her running to Leah for help. After Esty has her audition, she and Yanky have it out.
