A hit at the Cannes Film Festival, God’s Neighbors follows a group of religious young men in Israel who proudly take it upon themselves to “supervise” their neighbourhood. Following the rules of the street, they are not afraid to fight to ensure that religious laws are followed. When Avi, the group’s leader, falls in love with a young non-religious and strong-willed woman, he begins to question his own righteousness. An edgy, complex and moving portrait of young men trying to navigate the religious and secular worlds in their search for spiritual transcendence.
