An honest, amusing portrait of teen life in the 1950s. Set at a boys' Orthodox Jewish summer camp in the Poconos, these campers are so innocently naive they think stealing away to catch a movie is a horrible crime. The real drama unfolds as an uptight counselor, Chaim (Marcoux), thinks camper David (Taylor) is sleeping with his wife. Chaim's paranoia plays out in petty acts of jealousy, as when he recalls David's home run because his yarmulke fell off as he was rounding third base.
