In the still un-gentrified and rough Brooklyn of the 1980s, a Russian Jewish teenager struggles with his identity, his faith and his sexuality. For a Jewish prayer community or minyan to hold a service, it must consist of at least ten practicing Jews. David, who was born into a Russian immigrant family, is 17 and helps out regularly in the minyans of Brighton Beach, a mostly Jewish district of New York. But David, who is beginning to tentatively explore life in the East Village gay scene, gradually begins to question the strict rules of his community and befriends two elderly gay Jews. At the same time, David’s sexual awakening cannot be unaffected by the onset of HIV and AIDS.
