The Samaritans, a tiny religious sect in Israel and the West Bank, are dying out.
But they still maintain extremely harsh rules against assimilation: if you leave the fold, you and your family are as good as dead to the 700-person community. Israeli actress Sophie Tzedaka is one such woman. One by one, she and her three sisters became "Jews" and were excommunicated. So was their father.
“Lone Samaritan” is a touching father-daughter journey, one that crosses the boundaries of all religions. It explores universal issues of faith and modernity, the role of women in religion, and the individual’s right to forge an independent identity—especially when that means violating a tradition you still hold dear.
