Menachem, a religious widower and former front-man of a popular rock band, finds himself struggling to pay for medical treatments for his young daughter. There is good money to be made playing traditional weddings, so he enlists his former bandmates (and former best friends) to reunite so that he can earn some extra cash. What follows is a moving story of faith and fatherhood, enduring friendship, and coming to terms with the past. Redemption features a great soundtrack and a strong cast, including a stellar performance by lead actor Moshe Folkenflik.
