In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution.

Viviane Amsalem has been applying for divorce for three years, but her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, Viviane's determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges, shape a procedure in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out for judgment, apart from the initial request.
