Ramleh

Ramale

Sima and Orly have recently turned their backs on secular life and joined the ultra orthodox “Shas” party. Svetlana is a recent Jewish immigrant from Uzbekistan desperately trying to adopt an Israeli identity and establish an independent life for herself and her two daughters. Jihad is a Palestinian Muslim, born to a family of refugees, searching for a national identity while conflicted by the fact that she is also an Israeli citizen. Having completed law school, she alternates between wanting a career and a strict tradition that does not allow her the freedom she seeks. These four women live in a religious, national, and cultural labyrinth that does not allow them to meet. Their stories are told against the backdrop of Ramleh, Israel, between the general elections of 1999 and 2001.
