Synopsis

The Other Story

Strong female protagonists have been the mainstay of many Avi Nesher films. In “The Other Story”, two rebellious young women – one fleeing the chaos of secular hedonism for the disciplined comforts of faith; the other desperate to transcend her oppressive religious upbringing for sexual and spiritual freedom – cross paths unexpectedly in Jerusalem, to startling consequences.

Reviews

“The latest work from prolific Nesher underlines his track record for consistently creating engaging, thought-provoking reflections on modern life with broad commercial appeal” – Screen International

“Beautifully acted, written, and photographed, Avi Nesher’s The Other Story is a moving, fascinating and complex drama about family, spirituality and love” – The Jerusalem Post
