In this Oscar-nominated short film, five nuns have their daily routine of silence and prayer disrupted when a group of religious Israeli settlers crash their car through the convent's wall.

The Israelis must get home for Sabbath but neither the silent nuns nor Sabbath law-abiding settlers can operate a phone to get help. Together they must find a way to get the Israeli settlers home.
