During an outbreak of a deadly plague, a mystical woman must save her tight-knit Jewish community from invaders. Turning to Jewish mysticism, she conjures a dangerous entity to protect her and her people. However, the powerful creature she summons may be a far greater evil than anything she could have ever imagined.
As a 3rd generation of film and theatre directors in their family, Yoav (1976) and Doron (1978) started working in the film industry at an early age. After graduating from Tel Aviv University Film School, the brothers started writing and directing TV shows like Bad Girls, Asfur and Orpheus Project. Their first critically acclaimed feature film, Phobidilia (2009), was premiered in Toronto and Berlin Film Festivals. Their second feature film, Jeruzalem (2015) was sold to over 30 countries and regarded as one of the 10 scariest films on Netflix in 2017.
