Set in modern-day New York, this romantic comedy highlights the contrasting values between first and third generation American Jews by focusing on a 33-year-old single Jewish woman (Amy Irving), who works, lives, and loves in the modern gentile world and repeatedly rejects her grandmother's efforts to find her a traditional Jewish suitor. When she meets "the Pickle Man" (Peter Riegert) she begins reexamining her values as a modern, assimilated Jew and her prejudices against the "traditional" Jewish world.
