Mourning the death of his wife after a tragic accident, businessman Adam Friedman finds solace through living the mitzvoth--instructions for goodness, justice, and compassion. In a frenzy of good deeds, he saves lives and helps the needy. Followers--whom he doesn't want--begin camping out in front of his house.
Friedman's obsessive longing for a personal relationship to God makes him a prophet to many--but to others a madman in danger of losing custody of his only child. Determined to right the wrongs of a chaotic world, Friedman embodies a superherolike power to deliver help to those around him. Living the mitzvoth sometimes gets him into trouble, but that does not deter Friedman's quest to heal the world.
Is he crazy? Is he holy? We're never sure. But we do know he becomes Mitzvah Man.
