In August 1963, Chaim Goldberg’s life spins like a kaleidoscope out of control as he separates from his parents. He meets Nedda, a woman twice his age, but the next day he meets Stella, his classmate, and is infatuated with her. He wants them both, but the one woman he has to conquer is his neurotic mother. In the aftermath of the War and against the backdrop of the evolving American civil rights movement and feminism, he squirms against his manipulative mother and rabbity father and a malevolent East Coast mob boss, to get what he wants: to leave the East for California and become a doctor.
