Leaving the Fold (Quitter le Bercail)
Leaving the Fold is a documentary film about young Hassidic
or ultra-Orthodox Jews, both male and female, 18 to 23 years
old, in Montreal, New York and Israel who can no longer tolerate
living in the world in which they were born. They are prepared
to turn their backs on their relationships with their parents,
their siblings and their sheltered community to make their way
into secular society and our baffling world of endless choices.
LTF is a film about spiritual journeys in the opposite direction,
from the constraints and the strange beauty of religious fundamentalism
to the uncertainties of personal freedom.
