Agunah, a Hebrew word meaning “chained” or “anchored” woman, is a Jewish law principle in which a woman is bound in marriage by a husband who refuses to grant a divorce or who is missing and not proven dead.
A devout Rabbi-detective, whose job is to free the women whose husbands deny them a divorce and a new life, finds that in his own home lurks a secret that threatens his world and marriage.
“Unchained” the story of Yossef Mourad and his wife Hannah, takes the viewer into the closed-off ultra-orthodox Haredi world, and touches on the most painful place where Jewish-law clashes with modern life – the status of women in society.
