After living in New York for decades, Ronit (Rachel Weisz) returns to North London for her estranged father’s funeral. Her arrival causes an uproar in the Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her decades earlier for her attraction to Esti (Rachel McAdams), her childhood best friend. Based on the novel of the same name by Naomi Alderman, Disobedience examines the boundaries between personal freedom and faith as Ronit and a now-married Esti rekindle their repressed romance.
