Product Description

Aaron, a married butcher working in Jerusalem’s Orthodox community, is respected by friends and family – a pillar in the community. However, when he hires handsome runaway student Ezri to assist with his business, sexual tensions bristle, and the pair cautiously embark on a love affair that must be kept hidden at all costs. As forbidden truths come to the fore, these lovers are forced to either confront or relent in the face of a centuries old religious community, with startling results.

A beautifully affecting love story that has rightly earned comparisons to Brokeback Mountain, Haim Tabakman’s potent yet impeccably restrained tale has won awards and accolades at film festivals the world over.
