In MEN OVERBOARD, a Bar Mitzvah in New York City brings together three Jewish brothers who have taken different life paths (becoming a politician, a therapist, and a Buddhist monk), plus their fading but forceful father, the politician’s 13-year-old son (who doubts he’s ready to become a man), and the boy’s Bar Mitzvah tutor (a woman who loves the boy and possibly one of his uncles). As the boy is torn between obedience and defiance of his father, tensions grow, affecting everyone in the family, until anger becomes abuse and it becomes clear that the family’s status quo is no longer an option. MEN OVERBOARD asks “What makes a man?” as it explores the responsibility each of us has to protect the souls of those we love..

Following her mother’s death, Mai suddenly drops out of grad school, leaving behind her fellowship, her paintings, and her long-term boyfriend, Fischer. Fischer finds Mai at her family’s home, drinking away her sorrows and avoiding everything from her former life. With Mai’s father refusing to pay her late mother’s medical bills, her sister continuing their long-standing rivalry, and the house at risk of default, tensions rise.

At a co-ed boarding school during the Vietnam War, teachers and students stumble through a minefield of politics, desire, and spiritual yearning. Caught in the middle of this explosive landscape are Charlie, a young religion teacher who’s a stranger in America, and Edie, a wildly rebellious student Charlie’s determined to rescue from herself.
