A couple’s infertility struggle and traumatic treatment raise questions about their faith and ultraorthodox community.
Feigi and Naftali are a Jewish ultraorthodox couple struggling with infertility. Naftali travels to Ukraine to pray for a child at Rabbi Nachman’s grave, leaving Feigi with Rabbi Eliyahu, a guest who claims to be a healer. Despite Feigi’s reluctance, Rabbi Eliyahu convinces her to undergo a ‘spiritual treatment.’ When Naftali returns, he faces a crisis when he discovers the ‘treatment’ true nature, raising fundamental questions about his faith and trust in others.
