An inspiring documentary about two trail-blazing women who have combined their desire to effect social change in the ultra-Orthodox community with brave resourcefulness. Adina Bar-Shalom established the first academic-focused college for ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel. As a midwife, Rachel Chalkowski has delivered more than 30,000 babies. Against many odds, both have affected their community in admirable ways.
