Synopsis by Rovi

"This documentary film follows an orthodox Hasidic group. Located 50 miles north of New York City, The Satmar sect is a 22,000-member community called the City of Joel. With some of the highest marriage and birth rates, the City of Joel struggles with the lack of space to hold all of its members. However, with the community's expansion plans, the neighboring towns go against the sect's plans. Directed and written by Jesse Sweet. "
