A box office smash in Israel. An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the sexes in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem, in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power. When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi’s wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways as he tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men.
