Full Plot

Yisroel "Izzy" Jonigkeyt, an about-to-be-married Lubavitcher Chassid from Brooklyn, travels to San Francisco to visit Marek Wisniewski, a Polish Catholic born in Warsaw. They intend to collaborate on a project which examines why manic art world iconoclast Harry Kierk intends to destroy his entire life's work, in a ritualistic weekend of art destruction. As the visit progresses, Izzy and Marek discover for the first time that complex historical baggage impinges on their curious friendship, which grows more and more tremulous and discomforting with each day. Marek's fragile relationship with his brusque and covertly bigoted Americanized cousin Irek also begins to further obstruct his relationship with Izzy, as Irek is also their gateway for getting access to Kierk. As they delve deeper into their project as a means to distance themselves from their growing interpersonal issues, Izzy and Marek begin to understand, in their own respective ways and through gradually understanding their own cultural arrogance, why Kierk is driven towards destruction.
