In Israel, there is no such thing as a civil marriage or a civil divorce and a rabbi is the only person who can truly end a marriage. But the rabbi can only end the marriage if they have full consent from both spouses. This film follows the attempted end of a marriage when the husband refuses to grant his wife a divorce. Intense, powerful and difficult to watch, GETT shows what women's rights being stripped away truly looks like.
