Unchained

A devout Rabbi-detective tasked with unchaining women whose husbands deny them of a Jewish divorce and a new life, finds out that in his own home, and his own wife, lurks a secret that threatens his world and marriage.

Through the story of Yossef  Mourad and his wife Hannah, Unchained takes the viewer into the closed-off world of the ultra-orthodox Haredi society, and touches on the most painful place in which Jewish-law clashes with modern life – the status of women in society.

Created by Joseph Madmony, Tamar Kay, David Ofek. Produced with the assistance of The AVI CHAI Foundation and the Gesher Multicultural Film Fund and with the support of the Israeli Film Council.
