Larry is said to be unable to face life and start an “adventure” to become a Rabbi (Jewish religious leader) to provide solutions in his life. Larry is a devout Jew and has hope in his belief. However, in reality, the religious leaders he met could only provide cliche solutions that didn’t help at all.
This film touches the part of us who sometimes experiences a crisis of confidence because of the insistent bad luck in life.
