Campfire (2004)

It’s the early 1980’s, and a single mother decides to move with her two daughters to a religious-Zionist settlement in the “occupied territories.” The movie casts a not always flattering lens on the passions and beliefs of the community, shown through the trials of the two teenage daughters and the way they are treated by a host of characters. Painful, sometimes funny, and always poignant.
