Michal books a banquet hall for her marriage to Gidi on the eighth night of Chanukah. When Gidi tells her that he does not love her enough to marry her, he breaks off their engagement. But Michal is determined not to remain single and decides to keep the booking, believing that within 22 days God will give her a husband.

Switching genre from drama to romantic comedy, whilst keeping her focus on the world of ultra-Orthodox marriage, Burshtein’s latest film has a lot in common with her first feature »Fill the Void«. However Michal, the heroine, is not forced to marry as in the previous film, but rather feels compelled to do so to avoid humiliation in her community for being an unwed woman in her 30’s. A wry, witty and thoughtful examination of orthodoxy in Israel, and Michal’s unshakable belief that God will provide for her, »Through the Wall « is an unconventional romantic comedy filled with sparkling dialogue and Burshtein’s unique brand of generous humor.
