At 20, Viv was a promising young singer. At 30, her failing music career has forced her back into her mother's basement. But when this self proclaimed "bad Jew" reluctantly lands a job as a Cantor at her family's synagogue, she’s thrown into a wild ride of illicit affairs, drug trips, tense family drama, self discovery and some serious Jewish bops. In this musical comedy cross between Shiva Baby and The Jazz Singer, writer/creators Shaina Silver-Baird and Michael Goldlist have created a delightful story about modern Jewish life, unabashedly set in Toronto.
