Real-life siblings Jemima (Girls) and Lola (Mozart in the Jungle) Kirke star in this heart-warming and romantic dramedy as Andrea and Tara, two British-Jewish sisters in LA who, at a moment of crisis, turn to religion and sex for solace. Andrea is a successful yet emotionally lost writer who falls for a dashing and equally complex fellow writer Nick (Jamie Dornan). Tara, still grieving their recently deceased father, befriends a politically-engaged rabbi (Billy Crystal) and starts attending his sermons at synagogue. As they soon find out, however, it is ultimately down to them to make sense of their lives.
