A portrait of young Lior Liebling, a child with Down syndrome who is filled with an unquenchable spirit of davening (prayer) and singing. One of four children of Rabbi Mordechai Liebling and the late Rabbi Devora Bartnoff, Lior cajoles his way into the hearts of his siblings and his loving stepmother, Lynne Iser. As he navigates his daily life towards the bar mitzvah he has long anticipated, the film documents how the family and spiritual community he loves so much affirms the essence of the man Lior is becoming.
