The night after their grandfather's funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and somewhat physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, volatile, self-assured and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, who has his shiksa girlfriend, Melody, in tow. Stuck in the middle is Liam's brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray.
When Liam, Jonah, and Daphna are left to determine who ends up with a precious family heirloom in the wake of their grandfather’s death, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues.
Exploring the ties that ultimately keep families knotted together, BAD JEWS is a biting comedy about family and faith that questions what you choose to believe when you're the chosen.
