In Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Me’a She’arim district, Hannah and Zvi are forced back into each other’s lives after a loss of faith tore their marriage apart 20 years earlier.  Now the teenage children from their second marriages have become romantically involved, the estranged couple must deal with their past, their present, and their future in this fiercely romantic drama of love, faith, and passion.
