'After the death of his father, Yuri returns from Israel to the strict Chasidic community of Sydney. Losing his faith in Judaism, he rejects his former girlfriend Rivka and starts driving taxis. He falls for Sarita and in his grieving state takes much more from their budding friendship than she does. In his confused search for intimacy he ends up in some of the least intimate spaces, like porn shops and peepshows. Jewboy is a film about a young man's search for his place in the world, his family and his faith.'
