GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a marriage or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husband's full consent. Viviane Amsalem has been applying for a divorce ("GETT"), but her husband will not agree. Her determination to fight for freedom in the face of his heartless intransigence is, in the words of the Washington Post, "utterly mesmerizing!"
