The story follows Ronit (Weisz), a 32 year old rabbi’s daughter from an Orthodox Jewish community in London. She left the community to start her career in finance, but the news of her father’s death brings her back home. While back she rekindles a romance with her childhood friend, Esti (McAdams), who’s now married to Ronit’s cousin. The Orthodox community doesn’t approve of their relationship. The book touches on issues regarding religion and sexuality.
The production is set to start in 2017. We’ll report back when the trailer becomes available.
