Israel, 75 minutes
Dir: David Volach
An intimate and emotional story of the conflict between a father's love and his deep devotion to religion. A respected Orthodox Rabbi (Assi Dayan, Israel's leading actor/director, featured in TIME OF FAVOR) dotes on his only son but his religious strictures leave an emotional gap between the impish child and the stern father. When the father's all-consuming obsession with observing religious ritual inadvertently leads to tragedy, his previously subservient wife rages against both her husband and God.
"A dramatic retelling of the story of Abraham and Isaac with a devastating 'twist.'" - Kino
