Synopsis

Years after cutting herself off from her Orthodox family, Zohara (30) decides to show up at her younger sister's wedding. On her way from her to the wedding she meets Neriman (20), a young Bedouin woman, who's escaping an arranged wedding forced upon her with her cousin. Zohara finds herself becoming an unintentional accomplice in Neriman's escape. Zohara and Neriman's crossing paths creates a powerful encounter between two worlds, reflecting each woman's struggle with self definition and the expression of self in a "predetermined world."
