It’s based on the childhood memories of its screenwriter, Shlomit Nehama, who grew up in a traditional Mizrahi community in Jerusalem, the kind of place where everyone goes to synagogue together and keeps kosher and Shabbat, but where women generally don’t cover their hair or wear long sleeves, and where there is generally tolerance for differing levels of religious observance.
