Description: 

David Fisher (played by real life Hassidic Jew and East Coast Rap artist Nosson Zand), must choose between lying to his rabbi, or accepting God on his terms. In Song of David he is a sixteen year old soul-searching, rap loving Hassidic Jew studying to become a rabbi in a Los Angeles Yeshiva. Alienated by the social boundaries that enclose him, he reaches out to God with his personal brand of rap influenced music. He now must choose between the traditional world of his rabbinical school, and a world that tests his love for God.
