The film interweaves the stories of 4 small communities: Laredo, Butte, Latrobe and Dothan. Laredo is about a young interfaith couple who move home to Laredo to try and revive the struggling congregation but run out of time as their kids grow to the age at which they need Jewish education. Latrobe traces the last days of a conservative shul through the story of its most devoted member. Butte is about a free spirit woman who does it all to keep the shul going, but then gets sick and so the shul has to figure out a plan without her. And Dothan follows a family from LA to Dothan as part of the relocation program that pays Jewish families to move to Dothan, Alabama. Registration is required.
