22-year-old Sarabeth Cohen (Marla Sokoloff), a self-described "feminist artist," talks US through the travails of her Jewish-American family and her own coming of age. The youngest of three daughters, Sarabeth chafes against a mother defined by her commitment to separating meat from milk and a father (Ronald Guttman) preoccupied with Holocaust memories. In response, Sarabeth cultivates a rebellious attitude and a sweet-faced Roman Catholic boyfriend (Rob McElhenney). But her foray into Gentile-land is marred by social faux pas -? she brings wine to a barbecue -? and overheard anti-Semitic comments. Maybe Mom's knishes aren't so bad, after all.
