30 days. 1 wedding. No groom. No problem.

Exhausted by single life at 32, spirited bride-to-be Michal (Noa Koler) is eager for the comfort and companionship of marriage. So when her fiancé dumps her one month before their wedding, she is devastated but undeterred, deciding to keep her wedding date and trust that Fate will provide a suitable groom.

With invitations sent, the venue booked, the clock counting down to the big day, and pressure from her family mounting, Michal enlists two matchmakers to help her find Mr. Right. After a series of comically mismatched dates—including with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star—and many soul-bearing conversations with her sisters, Michal finds she has chemistry with someone she never expected. Trailblazing writer-director Rama Burshtein returns to the cloistered Orthodox community she knows intimately with this funny and poignant screwball romantic comedy, which debuted at the 2016 Telluride Film Festival. When it comes to finding love, it’s equal parts luck, determination and blind faith. D: Rama Burshtein, Israel, subtitled, 2016, 1h 50m
