“Absorbing, often simultaneously shocking and fascinating… this Israeli mini-series will keep you chained to the screen.” - Jewish Renaissance

Rabbi Yosef Morad’s job is to free married women from their reluctant husbands by persuading the latter to give them a?gett (a Jewish divorce document). His work is not unlike that of a detective: he follows, gathers evidence, draws conclusions. But will his investigative skills assist him in solving the mystery of his own faltering marriage, and his wife’s secret double life? 

JIFF screens all twelve episodes - presented in four parts - of this suspenseful Israeli TV show that explores the role of agunot, 'chained women' who are refused a divorce from their husbands, in Orthodox Judaism.
