Judah wants to protect his marriage and his reputation as a respected eye doctor, so he hires a hit man to kill Dolores. Wracked by guilt, he begins to turn back to his faith, represented by a gentle rabbi, one of his patients. Meanwhile, a man named Cliff is making a documentary about his celebrity brother-in-law Lester. He falls in love with a woman on the production team, but she falls instead for the insipid Lester. Cliff and Judah meet at the wedding of the rabbi’s daughter and discuss life and morality.
