After her sister dies in childbirth, an ultra-Orthodox 18-year-old woman is pressured to call off her engagement in order to marry her late sister’s husband. Refusing him is not an option in this community, where tradition, religious law, and the rabbi’s word are absolute. Hasidic Israeli writer-director Rama Burshtein brings us into this insular world from a woman’s perspective.
