This intense drama is set on the fault line between secularism and religious orthodoxy in modern Israel. Naomi (Ania Bukstein, Game of Thrones), a secular single woman rejecting her family and career as a classical pianist, moves to an Ultra-Orthodox area of Jerusalem. Two surprising connections with a musically gifted Ultra-Orthodox neighbor boy and a charismatic Italian monk and organist lead to anonymous escalating threats. Inside drab interiors with a shaky handheld camera, director Anner conveys a claustrophobic air of creeping unease and latent violence as tense and taut as a le Carre thriller.

TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO BUY AT THE NICKELODOEON AT 6:30 PM.
