Cohen's Wife
Israel 2000 | Drama  | 24 min
Synopsis
*Adult Subject Matter
After being raped by a stranger, a young ultra-orthodox woman awaits a Rabbinical decision about whether or not her husband should divorce her.  Jewish law states that "If the wife of a Cohen (descendant of a priest) is raped, she is forbidden to her husband." 
Cohen's Wife is a provocative modern day portrait of a couple torn between religious law and marital devotion.
