Mendy is a young Brooklyn Hasid, a devout member of an ultra orthodox Jewish sect. His entire life has been spent following the strict rules of his protective, insular and repressive community. This film is the story of Mendy's metamorphosis as he struggles to adapt and find a place in modern society, told through Yankel and Bianca. The former is a childhood friend who left the community years earlier and now leads a hedonistic lifestyle. The later is Yankel's roommate, a black Brazilian woman who offers an alternative view of the world, one that does not involve going from one extreme to another. An emotional and honest portrait of the human condition, Mendy tells the universal story of a young man on a quest for understanding, wisdom, and love.
