This novel centres on a meeting in Vienna in 1902 between the fifth Rabbi of Lubavitch - Rashab, and Sigmund Freud. The background to the story is based on the Rabbi's paralysis in his arm and a persistent stutter, leading him to a consultation with Freud.
The book tells the story of the Rabbi's travels from Lubavitch to Vienna and his subsequent meetings with Freud. The Rabbi's son and future successor accompanies his father on the trip. Freud analyses the details of the case with Wilhelm Stekel, one of Freud's most distinguished pupils and fellow psychoanalyst.
In the meetings, Freud and the Rabbi discuss themes related to their world views including Kabballah, psychoanalysis, faith, science, and how to deal with a changing world. Their discussions not only clarify their ideological views, but also provide insight into their personal stories, fears and internal struggles.
