New York photographer Ronit flies to London after learning about the death of her estranged rabbi father. Ronit is returning to the same Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her decades earlier for her childhood attraction to Esti, a female friend. Their reunion soon reignites old flames.
Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams are a scorching pair of taboo lovers in Sebastián Lelio’s examination of the stifling dogmas that exist in Orthodox Jewish communities. For women who dare to defy religious conventions and familial strictures, the desire to follow one’s heart comes at a heavy price.
