Ariela (Hebrew for “lioness”) is a modern and independent young woman from a traditional religious Syrian-Jewish family living in Mexico City. Making her way through the dating scene, Ariela falls for a non-Jewish man who introduces her to the world beyond her tight-knit community. As her family pressures her to find an appropriate match and her feelings for Ivan grow, Ariela finds there are no easy choices to be made. The intimate, insightful, and moving film offers stellar performances and a glimpse into a community whose stories are not often told. This film contains mature content.
