Description

An Orthodox Jewish woman living in the cemetery on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives struggles with her husband’s lack of interest in her. Walking through the cemetery one night, she is disturbed and excited to discover that it is a nocturnal marketplace for sex and drugs. She starts exploring this new aspect of the mountain, while trying to keep a normal face during her daytime routine. This subtle, handsome film impressively balances the predictable with the unexpected, weaving a complex portrait of a constrained life.

"Yaelle Kayam’s starkly original first feature about good and evil is a head-turner." - Hollywood Reporter
