Storyline

Two teenage Brooklyn Hasidic schoolgirls, unable to live under the strict rules of their community take the family car and run away across America to find what they assume will be the life of total freedom that lies beyond their insular world. They discover that a world where they don't understand the game is more dangerous than a world with too many rules, and they try to make their way in a new context, under new identities, and within an entirely new lifestyle.

Well done!

Sensitive and moving coming of age film in a world where you wouldn't expect such an in depth story. Great work all around by cast, writer and director.
