Within His Passions
Shmuel and Hannah are ultra-Orthodox Jewish newlyweds. But the sexual inexperience of both young people means that Shmuel's passion for his wife is full of fear, and the relationship is unconsummated. Shmuel escapes by going out for long walks in the city, where he centers his fantasies on the strangers he encounters. Yet in the end it is the real/surreal response of his wife that will bring him home.
