Like all Israeli youth, Atalya is obligated to become a soldier. Unlike most, she questions the practices of her country’s military, and becomes determined to challenge this rite of passage. Despite her family’s political disagreements and personal concerns, she refuses military duty and is imprisoned for her dissent.
Rev. Kaeley McEvoy of Westmoreland Church in Bethesda MD will lead a question and answer session with the film's director Molly Stuart and the subject of the film Atalya Ben-Abba.
