MINYAN


Description

A young Russian Jewish immigrant in New York Brighton Beach, caught up in the tight constraints of his community, develops a close friendship with his grandfather’s new neighbours, two elderly closeted men who open his imagination to the possibilities of love and the realities of loss — and explores the East Village where he finds a world teeming with the energy of youth and desire. Set in the late 1980s New York City, Minyan is a powerful story of rebellion and self-discovery, sexual and spiritual awakening — and survival.
