Description
A violent crime transforms the predictable life of a young Rabbi's wife, leading to terrible sacrifices. Tamar Fine gold is a happy young bride in one of Brooklyn's insulated ultra-Orthodox enclaves. But this staid, predictable life is violently altered when Tarmer is raped by an intruder as she baby-sits for her nephew. Humiliated and confused, she refuses to risk the unbearable stigma of discovery, but in her attempt to hide her shame, she is sent plummeting into a moral crisis: when she discovers she is pregnant and cannot be sure who the father is. In the end, heartbreaking sacrifices and impossible decisions lead to a surprising triumph of the human spirit.
