Eliezer and his son, Uriel, are Talmudic scholars with different approaches. Eliezer, who uses extremely traditional methods, as been largely overlooked by the academic community. He only claim to fame is being references in a footnote by his esteemed professor. Uriel, on the other hand, takes a modern approach and is gaining a wide audience for his work. In a twist of fate, Eliezer is mistakenly awarded the most prestigious award in Israel for his body of work. Uriel learns that the prize was meant to go to him instead, but makes a deal that allows his father to gain his long awaited recognition. Complications ensue in this father and son tale as Eliezer uses this stage to strongly criticize Uriel's work.
