This Israeli film, in Hebrew, French and Arabic, with English subtitles, deals with the difficulties in Israel to get a divorce when there is no mutual consent.

This riveting drama follows the five-year struggle of a woman to break from her loveless marriage. It provides a powerful examination of the roles of men and women in a religious society.
