Film and discussion

2009 - Israel - Hebrew/Yiddish (with English subtitles) - 90 minutes

Director: Haim Tabakman

Aaron, a respectable butcher in Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox Jewish community, is married to Rivka and is a dedicated father of four children. One day he hires Ezri, a handsome twenty-two year old student, as an apprentice and soon develops feelings for him.

As the relationship grows, Aaron starts to neglect his family and community life, swept away by his love--and lust--for Ezri. But a foreboding guilt, inner torment and intense condemnation from the community catch up with him, leading him to make a radical decision.
