In this inspiring true story, Oded Yosef Kassirer journeys from the deserts of Israel and the Israeli military to the tree-lined suburbs of Los Angeles.

On his way, he deals with coming out, relationships, his family and friends, dealing with his inner-demons, and finding love in the most unlikely of places.

Join us on this journey as Oded faces love, mortality and acceptance, just like the rest of us, in a tour-de-force performance that is both riveting and emotionally-charged.

Because no matter who you are, or where you come from, we all deserve a Chapter 2.
