What Is the Story of My Name Is Asher Lev?
Set in post-war Brooklyn, My Name Is Asher Lev tells the story of a young art prodigy who must reconcile his passion for painting (particularly nudes and crucifixion pieces) with his life as a young Hasidic Jew. With the help of a gifted mentor, Asher reaches his full potential as an artist and learns exponentially about himself in the process. However, Asher's religious father cannot understand the artistic path his only son has chosen. When Asher's breakout piece causes controversy, he must decide whether to be true to himself or appease his family and community.
