“Bukstein has a magnetic screen presence.” Hollywood Reporter

Naomi, a bright young pianist from Tel Aviv, takes a break from her stressful career and moves to a quiet, Haredi neighbourhood in Jerusalem. But her quest for peace soon turns into a nightmare when her new neighbours do all they can to make her feel unwelcome. Full of suspense, A Quiet Heart is a chilling study of the growing tension between secular and religious groups in Israel today.
