When a beloved north London rabbi dies, his estranged only child, photographer Ronit (Rachel Weisz), returns home from New York to mourn him. Reconnecting with her childhood friends Dovid and Esti (Rachel McAdams), Ronit is reminded of the suffocating restrictions of the religious community she fled, as well as her untenable teenage love affair with the otherwise devout Esti. The question of whose disobedience, and what kind of disobedience it is, are at the heart of this absorbing and moving love story from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio, his English language debut, following very quickly on the heels of his Academy Award winning film A Fantastic Woman.
