An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the men and women in a devout community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted comedy. Awash with Jerusalem’s distinctive glow, this warm, poignant portrait of a modern community struggling to balance protocol with practical, progressive values is at once rebellious and respectful in spirit.

In Hebrew with English subtitles.

A Menemsha Films release.

A film by Emil Ben-Shimon

A charming, warm-hearted comedy.”
