In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution. But this dissolution is only possible with full consent from the husband, who in the end has more power than the judges. Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has been applying for divorce for three years. But her husband Elisha (Simon .Abkarian) will not agree.
We will have a discussion about the connection between religion and state in Israel and the complexity about it.
In this comedy, “Zohi Sdom” recounts the story of the birth of the Jewish people and the advent of monotheism on the backdrop of the last week in history of the infamous city of Sodom, the entreatment, gambling, sex and corruption capital of biblical times. A close look will reveal that the biblical reality is no different than our relation in 21st Century Israel. A jungle of wheeling and dealing where it’s every man for himself.
