Summary: "Eighteen-year-old Shira, an Orthodox Hassid living in Tel Aviv, is looking forward to marrying a handsome, promising boy of her own age. But when her elder sister dies in childbirth and the father considers leaving Israel to re-marry, Shira ʼs mother proposes a union between her daughter and son-in-law to keep her only grandchild in the country. Shira must then make the terrible choice between her heart ʼs desire and her family duty. As tense and gripping as any thriller, this fascinating insight into a largely closed-off world is a breathtaking exploration of the struggle between family bonds and individual freedom that has heralded its director as a bold new voice in contemporary cinema" -- Container.
