The Skies are Closer in Homesh

A highly personal documentary that follows a newly wed Jewish couple through their first few years of married life on a dangerous Israeli settlement in the West Bank. The diarist documentary exposes what life is like for Menorah, a young and nervous settler, who was married on the day of a terrorist attack, spent her honeymoon trapped inside her home because of terrorism, and sleeps with a gun under her pillow.

From a terrorist attack the night of Passover that murdered close friends to the birth of her first child, Menorah turns on her camera to share highly personal moments.
