Two women—a secular Jewish lawyer, a newly separated Orthodox milliner—meet by chance and discover in each other a life not lived....


Nadine, a secular Jewish lesbian, meets Orthodox Miriam through Miriam’s children. Nadine wants to cultivate her Jewish identity, where Miriam is dealing with doubts about her place in the world in the wake of her husband’s departure from both their household and Orthodoxy. The women’s friendship grows as they spend time together, and chemistry between them takes weight. Miriam’s estranged husband knows Nadine as a fellow lawyer and tries to steer Miriam, whom he perceives as unworldly, clear of Nadine.  Miriam surprises him and Nadine both by filing for civil divorce. In the course of an evening observing the ritual at Sabbath’s end, Nadine and Miriam confront the desire between them. What will Miriam choose?
