Set in the Ultra-orthodox Mea She'arim district in Jerusalem, HARD LOVE is the fiercely romantic and passionate story of Hannah and Zvi, a divorced couple whose lives are thrown back together when the teenaged children from their second marriages become romantically involved. The enormous divide between the faithful and the non-believing is attempted to be bridged by the power of an undying earthly love. Which will win out? How will they navigate this greatest of all divides?
