  • Aired: 06/16/2014

  • Rating: NR
When he looses his father a young man decides to follow traditional Jewish tradition and sit Shiva, or mourn his passing. The only problem is he has no one to sit with him – after some failed attempts in his neighborhood, he ultimately finds a motley crew of “friends” on the Internet willing to take on the gig, with various subtly humorous intentions and motivations.
