Synopsis

Naomi, a married ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman is expected to fulfill her life's purpose and become a mother. She is young, immature, and has already raised children as older sister in a large Orthodox family. But no matter what, she is obliged by the social norm. Do the personal wishes of a young woman stand a chance against a rigidly conservative social structure? Will Naomi's marriage survive the test?
