The beautiful coastline of Tel Aviv draws devoted beachgoers eager to find peace and relaxation in the Mediterranean. Among these are residents of Bnei Brak, a closed orthodox suburb, who frequent a gender-segregated stretch of seaside, closed off to the neighboring gay beaches with a modesty fence. Kainer’s insightful and often humorous film explores the importance of this kosher beach, even defying the wishes of rabbis fearful of the beach’s “immorality”.
