Description

A riveting suspense thriller about the evils of religious intolerance. Ania Bukstein (Game of Thrones) stars as Naomi, a secular Israeli suffering a personal crisis that threatens to derail her career as a concert pianist. Fleeing Tel Aviv, she moves to Jerusalem and rents an apartment in a Haredi neighbourhood. Disdain towards a secular woman soon turns to outright hostility when Naomi befriends an Italian monk who teaches her to play the pipe organ. The film delivers an interesting examination of the tensions between Jerusalem’s secular and religious communities.
