After the death of his father, Yuri returns from Israel where he was studying to become a Rabbi, to the strict Chasidic community of Sydney. Losing his faith in Judaism, he rejects his former girlfriend and starts driving taxis. He falls for a colleague, Sarita and in his grieving state takes much more from their budding friendship than she does. Jewboy is a film about Yuri's search for intimacy - for his place in the world, his family and his faith. An accomplished and assured debut by writer/director Tony Krawitz, starring Ewen Leslie, Naomi Wilson, Saskia Burmeister, Leah Vandenberg, Nicholas Eadie and Chris Haywood. Jewboy is filled with conflict, emotion and ultimately hope, and set in a world rarely seen in Australian films.
