    • Aaron, a respectable butcher in Jerusalem's ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, is married to Rivka and is a dedicated father of four children.
      One day, he meets Ezri, a twenty-two-years-old handsome student, and soon falls in love with him. He then starts to neglect his family and community life, swept away by his love and lust for Ezri.
      But guilt, torment and pressure from the community will catch up, and lead him to take a tragic decision...
