The critically-acclaimed new drama Minyan follows David (Samuel H. Levine), a teenager at a strict yeshiva in Brighton Beach at the height of the 1980s.
While helping his grandfather (Ron Rifkin) settle into a retirement facility in the tight-knit Russian Jewish enclave he calls home, he meets Itzik and Herschel (Mark Margolis and Christopher McCann), two elderly closeted gay men who open him up to the possibility of connection, community – and love. Finding his way to the East Village, David finds solace in like-minded souls, and quietly blossoms. When Itzik dies and the neighbors want to throw Herschel out, David must stand up to defend his discoveries about himself and where he belongs.
From writer-director Eric Steel (The Bridge) comes a story of strength in numbers, as one young man wakes up to the realities of a new life – where youth, desire and risk collide with the indelible specters of the past.
