A man's poignant year of mourning his father, Ari Goldman recounts his thoughts of this life-changing life passage. As an observant Orthodox Jew, Goldman goes to daily synagogue services to say kaddish for his father. During the year, he writes about how his philosophy of life/death alter, the people he meets along the way, the ways his personal life changes, and how he deals with the realities of becoming an orphan at age 50.
