Louisville Jewish Film Festival: Barren Virtual Film

February 4 - February 11

Ultraorthodox Feigi and Naftali are a young childless couple living with Naftali’s parents. Naftali travels to Ukraine to pray at Rabbi Nachman’s grave for a child. During Naftali’s absence Rabbi Eliyahu, the barren healer, is invited to stay for the holiday with the family. Abusing Feigi’s trust and desire for a child he forces himself on her claiming it is divinely sanctioned as part of her treatment for barrenness.. When Naftali returns, the couple face a difficult crisis, which raises fundamental questions about faith and trust.
