ABOUT THE FILM
Unhappy with the restrictive traditions of home and community, Rebecca begins to explore life beyond her strict Orthodox home. Suspicious and angry, her father reacts by setting in motion a prearranged marriage to an older widower with children of his own. A romantic, coming of age tale that explores themes of love, reconciliation, and tradition versus modernity. Based on the short story by Savyon Leibrecht and nominated for three Israeli Academy Awards.

Directors: Arik Lubetsky & Matti Harari, Israel, 2014, 87 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles
