This sensitive film — for adult audiences only — portrays a young ultra-Orthodox couple struggling to conceive their first child. The family seeks spiritual help by turning to religious customs and an itinerant “Rabbi” whose shofar-blowing is said to cure infertility. He sets a family crisis into motion, testing their faith in God and their relationships. Will the family be able to forgive each other for what happens next? Beautifully filmed in Tzfat with haunting performances including Yoav Rotman from “Shtisel.”

Patron Sponsors: Lynn & Armand Shapiro and Helen Wils & Leonard Goldstein
