Rachel, an ultra-orthodox young woman, entered an 'arranged' marriage ready to be a "kosher" woman doing the will of her husband. After her marriage fails and she gets divorced, she asks permission to remove her wig – an unusual move in the ultra-Orthodox society. Facing the opposition from her parents and society, she starts to question the religion’s attitude to woman and her own body and mind.
