Apples from the Desert

Rebecca, the only daughter of Ultra Orthodox Jewish parents from Jerusalem and unhappy in her life, begins to secretly expose herself to the secular world. She befriends Dubi, a young man from a kibbutz. Her strict father reacts by setting her up with a widower with kids from the community. Her reserved mother is appalled dares not defy her husband. Rivka’s conflict with her family culminates in a moment of truth when she forces her parents to confront themselves and their ways.
