After being raped by a stranger, a young ultra-orthodox woman awaits a Rabbinical decision about whether or not her husband should divorce her. Jewish law states that 'If the wife of a Cohen (descendant of a priest) is raped, she is forbidden to her husband.' Cohen's Wife is a provocative modern day portrait of a couple torn between religious law and marital devotion.
