Shmil loses face in the ultra-Orthodox community when he is expelled from one of its most prestigious Yeshivas. He will do anything in his power to be allowed to return.

Shmil's immature and arrogant behaviour gets him thrown out of the prestigious yeshiva where he has been studying. As the neighborhood prodigy, Shmil can't face up to his failure and uses manipulative tactics to get the attention of the Yeshiva's Rabbi, who nevertheless turns a deaf ear on his entreaties. What will Shmil do next?
