Storyline

"If I saw someone else screaming like my mother, I would be sure that person was mentally disturbed, if it wasn't 100% authentic..." This is what Israel Meir says about his mother, Rabbanit Lea Kook, whose discourse, according to him, stems from absolutely authentic belief. The ultra orthodox community in general & its women in particular are extremely wary of media exposure. The film therefore provides a rare look into the lives of ultra orthodox women, their activities & their grasp of their identities. Tikkun portrays the phenomenon of the Rabbanit (the wife of a Rabbi) of Tiberius, Leah Kook, an orthodox leader followed by many Israeli women. This film is a vivid picture of the routines and customs of life in an ultra-orthodox household and introduces a very charismatic,yet highly controversial main character. Rabbanit Kook, a staunch believer in a prophecy the world refuses to hear, such an extrovert enthusiast that the filmmaker documented her intensively for two entire years. ...
