Eyes wide open

Eyes wide open, Haim Tabakman

Aaron, a respectable butcher in Jerusalem’s ultra-orthodox  Jewish community, is married to Rivka and is a dedicated father of four  children. One day, he meets Ezri, a handsome twenty-two year old student, and  soon falls in love with him. He then starts to neglect his family and  community life, swept away by his love and lust for Ezri. But guilt, torment  and pressure from the community will catch up with him, leading him to make a radical decision.
