Adult Subject Matter
20 year old Emunah, an orthodox bride, accompanies her new husband to their new home on the night of the wedding.  Emunah awaits the wedding night with hesitations and expectations.  To her disappointment, the first night unfolds completely differently to how she has imagined.  Lack of experience, embarassment and the gap between imagination and reality, all cast their shadow on the wedding night and on the following days.  Can this young marriage survive its first week?
