Ori Gruder (aka Or Yashar), an orthodox religious Jew, sets out on a personal journey to address one of the most important prohibitions in Judaism - the spilling of sperm. We follow the emotional and theological struggle of the director who attempts to find a proper way to explain this major commandment to his son. Sacred Sperm exposes one of the most suppressed issues within the Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community.
