Eyes Wide Open

Eyes Wide Open Movie Poster

The day he reopened his recently deceased father's butcher shop, Aaron, a highly-respected family man in his ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem community, takes Ezri, a Yeshiva student, as an apprentice. Although attracted to Ezri, Aaron resists, as a way to strengthen his faith in God. But when he succumbs to his long-buried desire, the butcher finds himself in an untenable position—homosexuality is simply inconceivable in his community. Summoned by his wife and the rabbi to choose between absolute piety and a forbidden love that makes him feel alive for the first time in his life, Aaron faces a painful dilemma.
