Synopsis by Kathryn Tamms

Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, best-selling author of the book When Bad Things Happen to Good People, tackles the issues of guilt and shame and encourages readers to accept themselves and others alike, imperfections and all. Kushner blames society's unrealistic expectations of perfection for setting up obstacles to personal and spiritual growth, in which an acceptance of basic human failings is key. Filmed outdoors before a live audience, Kushner answers questions and offers valuable insights into relationships and dealing with others in a less-than-perfect world.
