FULL SYNOPSIS

A young woman who had previously forsaken the Orthodox lifestyle attempts to make amends with her father by acquiring a couch said to have been used by many famous Jewish figures in this humorous documentary from filmmaker [[Performer~P368976~Pearl Gluck~pearlgluck]]. As a teenager, [[Performer~P368976~Gluck~pearlgluck]] rebelled against her Orthodox upraising by moving to Manhattan to experience life on the secular side. When [[Performer~P368976~Gluck~pearlgluck]]'s father expresses a desire for his daughter to marry and return to Brooklyn, [[Performer~P368976~Gluck~pearlgluck]] attempts to reach a compromise with her father by traveling to Hungary and retrieving a turn-of-the-century couch from her family's past that is said to have been slept upon by a series of esteemed rabbis. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
