Documentary, 60 min, Israel, 2019

Sarah has been refused a divorce for two years, Noa has been waiting for  three  years, and Oshrat for nine years. The freedom of these women and hundreds more in Israel is in the hands of their husbands and the rabbinic courts. 

According to Jewish religious law, which is also the national law in Israel, only the husband has the power to grant a divorce. Women find themselves chained to their husbands against their will, even if the separation was mutual.

Batya Kahana Dror is a religious woman and combative lawyer, daring to rebel against the Orthodox Jewish courts. She believes the laws must be changed according to our time. She fights for the freedom of Sarah, Noa, Oshrat, and many more.
