From a screenplay by Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, this lesbian love story is set in the Orthodox Jewish community in North London. The film follows a woman (Rachel Weisz) as she returns from New York after the death of her estranged rabbi father to the Orthodox Jewish community where she grew up. Once back at home, she stirs up controversy when she rekindles a romance with a former friend (Rachel McAdams) who happens to be married to her cousin (Alessandro Nivola)
This drama wrestles with the hard questions regarding the life we are born into and the life we choose for ourselves.
