Ronit Krushka (Rachel Weisz
), a non-practicing Orthodox Jew, returns home to London, England when her father, a rabbi, passes away. Once shunned by the Jewish community for having had a relationship with her childhood friend Esti Kuperman (Rachel McAdams
), Ronit is greeted with surprise, as people wonder what she's doing back in town, since even her own father disowned her.
When Ronit runs into Esti, who is now married, they realize they still both have feelings for each other.
