The building site of a new synagogue located at the heart of a close-knit community in Jerusalem turns into a battleground between husbands and wives, when a new charismatic rabbi decrees that it will not feature the women's balcony - thus barring them altogether from religious services. THE WOMEN'S BALCONY is a joyous, riotous and thought-provoking portrayal of a community striving for equality, which has deservedly become a global hit.
