4 relationships, at times bewildering, lend rhythm to this journey into the world of ultra-orthodox Israel: a wife, despite being loved, is repudiated by her husband because she is sterile, her sister has to accept marriage to a man she does not love. No one seems to even suspect the existence of happiness for the women. Gitai films with a slow, attentive, embracing pace, ensuring the spectator “misses nothing” of the suffering and abuse.
