Middle-aged divorcee Roberto and his septuagenarian father – Brazilian expats living in Israel – are soccer fanatics, boiling over with excitement for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil. That is, until Roberto’s ex-wife informs him that she’s off on a business trip (to Rio, no less!), saddling him with sole care of their spoiled teenage son. She’ll be gone for entire duration of the tournament, and to his eyes it’s a disaster on par with the divorce itself, especially considering the boy’s righteous disdain for all sports. Then, a crazy idea forms… if Roberto’s ex-wife is going to Rio, why can’t they?

Jewlia Eisenberg (Charming Hostess) and Jeremiah Lockwood (Sway Machinery) draw from the rich biblical commentary of Black and white American traditional music, Yiddish ghost songs, and piyutim (paraliturgical songs) for a mix the BBC describes as, “A wonder of haunted American roots music, taking listeners from Yiddish laments to labor anthems via mystical twists and turns.”

On the verge of middle age, Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman have a hankering for the Jewish Montreal of their youth, not to mention its rich culinary heritage. They set out to eat their way through the city, along the way re-engaging and discovering Le Metropole’s storied Jewish community, its mouth-watering eateries, and of course the scrumptious Jewish cooking that powers it all.
