Esther Blueburger is not like other girls, she befriends a duck, talks to God through the toilet and break-dances at her bat-mitzvah.

Her school is a daily torment of mind-numbing conformity and bell-ringing rituals.

Home is a pressure cooker, but life changes when Esther meets uber hip Sunni and her off beat single mother, Mary.

With the help of Sunni, Esther goes away from her ordinary life and leaves behind her malfunctioning Jewish family.

Esther begins to hang out at Sunni's forbidden public school as a Swedish exchange student, prompting the teen to lead a double life.
