After Jacob Bloom and his Catholic friend, Tommy Donnelly, are caught by an altar server stealing the offertory from Tommy’s church, they are blackmailed for $15,000. Jacob, Tommy, and Tommy’s sister, Maggie, use the stolen cash to buy marijuana plants, which they then prepare kosher for Passover, and begin selling the weed (nicknamed Koshe) to Jacob’s Jewish community as a way to pay back their blackmailer. In the midst of this, Jacob deals with a crisis of faith as he becomes more apprehensive of living by his overbearing rabbi father's rules.
