One of the most celebrated and popular Hasidic wig-sellers in Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn struggles with the desire to take off her wig, an action that would risk her reputation, livelihood, and her sense of identity. As she begins to question the fabric of her life with her three young daughters In tow, she sets out on a journey of self discovery to figure out who she really is when she dares to go against the grain.
