CHAINED

FICTION | ISRAEL - GERMANY | 2019 | 112 MINUTES

A Film by Yaron Shani

CHAINED is part of Love Trilogy directed by Yaron Shani.

Rashi has been a police officer for 15 years, a guardian of others and the law, always in control. Despite his constant exposure to violence, he dearly hopes to have a child with his wife Avigail. Then Rashi’s world is shaken. He is accused of sexual assault and suspended from the force due to his conduct during a standard police-check on some privileged boys. While defending his innocence at work, he finds himself clashing at home with his Lolita-like step-daughter who is as assertive and stubborn as he is, defying his authority. His wife becomes gradually distant. Helpless and chained by his need to dominate, he becomes a danger to himself and his beloved ones.
