Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality. Adapted from the novel by Naomi Alderman.

In the words of the filmmaker: “Disobedience exists in the clash between forces that appear to be irreconcilable: individual freedom against the interest of the community; the loss of purpose against faith; the attraction of the forbidden against moral duty; human instinct against the divine order; the exploration of new ways of being versus the forces of the tradition; flesh against spirit. The eternal conflict between duty and desire.”
