Movie Haiku:Intensely painful story of two married sisters living in an ultra-orthodox community in Jerusalem. This first feature by a popular Israeli documentary filmmaker has an almost anthropological eye for the details of daily life, but ultimately this is a story about the ties that bind: personal AND political.
