Synopsis

Following their international hit series Shtisel, writers and directors Ori Elon and Yehonatan Indursky return with this gripping dystopian thriller series. Set in the present day, Autonomies imagines an alternative reality in which Israel is split into two separate entities: the secular State of Israel, whose capital is Tel Aviv, and, on the other side of a dividing wall, an ultra-orthodox autonomy based in Jerusalem. The battle over the custody of a girl who was born into a Haredi family but has been raised by secular parents threatens to push the two territories into irrevocable chaos.

* There are 5 episodes in the complete series but please note that Episode 1 contains both parts 1 and 2 of the story. Episode 2 contains part 3 and so forth…
