| USA | 12 MINUTES | English

Loosely based on the story of Cain and Abel, Storm Up The Sky is the story of a Hasidic Jewish family trying to live a traditionally pious life in the modern, assimilated world. It explores themes of individuality, religion, and family. Centered on the two eldest sons of a strict Hasidic patriarch, this film explores how each of these siblings responds to their father's imposing system of beliefs.
