Synopsis

Years after cutting herself off from her Orthodox family, Zohara (30) decides to show up at her younger sister’s wedding. On her way, she meets Neriman (20), a young Bedouin woman, who is escaping an arranged marriage to her cousin. Zohara finds herself becoming an unintentional accomplice in Neriman’s escape.

The crossing of these women's paths creates a powerful encounter between two worlds, reflecting each woman’s struggle with identity and the expression of self in a “predetermined world”.
