Israel 2002. Director: Hadar Friedlich
Post-screening discussion with Rabbi Philip Bregman and Dr. Steve Taylor
In a Jewish Orthodox village in Israel, Tamar – a twelve year old girl – prepares for her Bat-Mitzva (Confirmation), which will take place on Passover. She becomes convinced that she is impure and grows increasingly scared and depressed. She forces herself into an endless ritual of cleaning, while attempting to silence her unyielding whispering inner obsessional thoughts which detail every inch of her relentless guilt, over and over again.
