Barren

Feigi and Naftali are a young childless ultraorthodox couple living with Naftali’s parents. Naftali travels to Ukraine to pray for a child during the holiday at Rabbi Nachman’s grave. During Naftali’s absence a guest is invited to stay for the holiday with the family, he introduces himself as Rabbi Eliyahu, the barren healer. Using Feigi’s trust and desire for a child he rapes her claiming it will treat her infertility. When Naftali returns, the couple face a difficult crisis, which raises fundamental questions about faith and trust.
