Director: Emil Ben-Shimon • Israel • 2016 • Hebrew with English subtitles • 96 min

In a dramedy set in a religious Sephardic community in Jerusalem, what begins as a joyous celebration turns into disaster when a women’s balcony at an Orthodox synagogue collapses during a bar mitzvah party, injuring a number of people and leaving the senior rabbi in a state of shock. To the rescue comes a young and charismatic rabbi, but his fundamentalist ways soon divide the close-knit congregation along gender lines, unleashing a battle of the sexes.
