"Released as the settlements on the Gaza Strip were being dismantled, Cedar's film offers a refreshing new perspective of them and a sly critique of their origins."
– Ken Fox, TV Guide
"Remarkable! A winningly heartfelt little gem!"
– Jen Johans, Film Intution
"Always engaging to watch! A very warm and character-driven film that tackles the very timely, provocative subject of racial discrimination in a surprisingly gentle way."
– Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

Synopsis

The year is 1981. Rachel Gerlik, a widow with two beautiful teenage daughters, wants to join a new religious settlement in the West Bank. But to her chagrin, the group will not accept her unless she remarries and proves that she and her daughters can lead a chaste life. When Tami, her youngest daughter, is accused of seducing some local boys, Rachel is forced to make a deadly decision. Only the new man in Rachel's life can show her that living as an outcast is not as bad as it seems.
