THE WOMEN'S BALCONY

During a Bar Mitzvah, the women’s balcony of a synagogue comes crashing down. A young, charismatic rabbi arrives making promises, offering a plan for the reconstruction of the synagogue —without a women’s balcony—testing friendships and creating tension. The women organize to rebuild the synagogue with their balcony and reclaim their place in the congregation.
