After establishing the setting, the action begins with a softball game. After a surgery Reuven seems to be healing well but there is a chance that he will be blind in one eye. Danny comes to the hospital to apologize and Reuven refuses to speak with him.
They are growing up during WWII in different but both very religious Jewish communities and most of their time is spent discussing academics, religion, Jewish culture and tradition as shown by their nearly constant study of the Talmud.
This position has been passed down through his family for generations but Danny does not want to become a rabbi. He wants to be a psychologist. On top of this, Reb Saunders believes in bringing up his son in complete silence, so Danny feels utterly alone, and truly needs his friendship with Reuven.
Reuven and his father help Danny through his difficult choice to break with tradition and possibly form a life outside of the only culture he knows. Reuven and Danny go to Hirsch College together and Danny delves even deeper into psychology as his major.
He believes that it is the responsibility of American Jews to maintain the Jewish faith after such destruction. Reb Saunders believes that this is blasphemous; he disagrees with the idea of a secular Jewish state.
When Israel becomes a reality, and more Jews including a Hirsch College alum are dying to defend the state, Reb Saunders finally gives in.
Danny and Reuven begin speaking again but Reuven now hates Reb Saunders. Reb Saunders keeps asking to see Reuven, but Reuven continues to make excuses. Malter tells his son that Reb Saunders clearly wants to tell him something and that he should never refuse to listen to another person. Reuven agrees to go to the Saunders home.
Reb Saunders tells Reuven, while Danny is still in the room, that he knows that Danny wants to become a psychologist.
