It’s Passover during a pandemic, and Josh (Adam Lebowitz-Lockard) asks his friend, Athena (Salome Mergia), to join him in virtual Passover. Unfortunately, Josh’s mother recently passed away, and his brother Mark (Goren Ivanovski) refuses to speak to him for missing the funeral.

“…can find only part of the recipe in his mother’s Passover box.”

Josh decides to cook his favorite dish, beefies, for Passover but can find only part of the recipe in his mother’s Passover box. Desperate to make the dish, Josh reluctantly reaches out to Mark to find the missing steps.
