Holy Rollers is inspired by true events in the late 90s when Hasidic Jews were hired as drug mules to smuggle from Europe to the States. Sam Gold (Jesse Eisenberg), a young Hasid from an Orthodox Brooklyn community reluctantly follows the path his family has chosen for him, awaiting an arranged marriage and studying to become a Rabbi. A charming neighbor, Yosef Zimmerman (Justin Bartha), senses Sam’s hesitations and propositions him to transport “medicine” for Jackie (Danny A. Abeckaser), an Israeli dealer, and his girlfriend, Rachel (Ari Graynor). Sam quickly demonstrates his skills to the bosses, who instantly take Sam under their wing. Now exposed to the exciting worlds of Manhattan and Amsterdam nightlife, Sam begins to spiral deeper into their lifestyle, experimenting with ecstasy and then falling for Rachel.
