About this item
Rochel is an Orthodox Jew, and Nasira a Muslim of Syrian origin. They are both young teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. They also have something else in common - they are going through the process of getting "arranged marriages" through their respective religious and traditional customs. With both family pressure on the one hand, and the rejection of traditional values by the outside world on the other, Rochel and Nasira will have to rely on each other and their friendship to pull through this difficult time of their lives, striving to be strong women in charge of their own happiness, while keeping their deep religious and cultural convictions.
Bonus Short Film: "The Raft" - Two starving and exhausted castaways are lost at sea, when a seagull drops a fish onto their raft. Their friendship is put to the ultimate test. "The Raft" has won awards at over 20 film festivals, including the Best Animation Award at the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival.
