Tabakman's feature debut is a gay melodrama set in the ultra orthodox Jewish community in Jerusalem, chronicling a passionate affair between introverted Aaron (Strauss) and his rootless employee Ezri (Danker). Ultimately too clichéd a tale of doomed love and unbending doctrine to be either compelling or memorable.
