Though they've lived their entire lives less than five blocks from each other, 15-year olds Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders exist in different worlds. Reuven blends into both his secular Jewish faith and his typical American teen life, while Danny's conservative Hasidic clothes and appearance make him stick out. When Danny almost blinds Reuven with a vicious line drive in a tumultuous softball game, the two boys are brought together and develop an improbable friendship.
