In Rama Burshtein's exploration of life within an ultra-orthodox Jewish community, a young Hasidic woman is pressurised by her family to marry the widower of her recently deceased sister. This makes for a fascinating drama, as she maps out the culture and societal structures that dictate life, whilst never losing perspective of Shira's predicament. Newcomer Hadas Yaron gives an impressive performance as the young bride-to-be.
