About the Film

Two rebellious young women—one fleeing the chaos of secular hedonism for the disciplined comforts of faith, the other desperate to transcend her oppressive religious upbringing for sexual and spiritual freedom— cross paths unexpectedly in Jerusalem with startling consequences. The latest from acclaimed director Avi Nesher, this empowering drama unfolds like a juicy thriller.

Nesher masterfully weaves the film’s intricate web of desperate parents, rebellious children, religious devotion, and spouses locked in conflict even as they alter their tactics and change alliances. Starring Joy Reiger and Sasson Gabai.
