Vice Versa

Directed by Amichai Greenberg

"Can we leave past sins behind? Our sages say we can." Such are the opening lines that introduce this moving story about the relationship between a dedicated yeshiva student, Yochai, and terminally-ill 18-year-old Ayelet. When Ayelet is diagnosed with advanced bone cancer, she stubbornly refuses treatment. Her desperate father asks Yochai to become her spiritual mentor with the hope that he can persuade her to seek medical help. Ayelet is amused by what she perceives as Yochai's awkward innocence, but fascinated by his attempts to forge a deep relationship with God. Yochai, for his part, is mesmerized by Ayelet's beauty and grace, and is totally overwhelmed by being in such close proximity to a woman for the first time in his life. Finding himself deeply attracted to Ayelet, Yochai faces the most difficult decision of his life–whether to leave the yeshiva or abandon his newfound love.
