One of Us
ONE OF US follows three Hasidic Jews as they attempt to leave their ultra-Orthodox community. Luzer left his arranged marriage and family to pursue his dream of being an actor and has returned to try to come to grips with his past. Etty leaves her abusive husband and faces the wrath of a community determined to use any means necessary to prevent her from seeing her children. At age 18, Ari leaves to explore the wonders and the dark side of the secular community that had been denied him his entire life. Each of these three struggle with leaving, but also struggle with the rigid orthodoxy and deep denial of the abuse they suffered as they enter a world in which they have no experience, and with painful ostracism upon leaving the only world they know.
