Like other young women from her observant Jewish community in Brooklyn, Chanshi is on the right track. Engaged to a great guy she barely knows, she will play the part of the good wife and birth at least six of his children. Basically, she’s about to become a walking uterus. Unlike her peers, Chanshi carries with her a fantasy that good religious girls like her shouldn’t: She wants to have a lot of sex — not with her future husband, but with Israeli soldiers. Mind set, she takes off for Israel to surprise her best friend, Noki, who has upcoming nuptials of her own. Once there, Chanshi abandons her inhibitions to become the free, adventurous woman she was born to be. Finally, she’s in control of her own life. Needless to say, her parents do not approve.

Chanshi creator Aleeza Chanowitz draws heavily upon her own life experience as the writer and star of this unabashedly audacious, yet nuanced, series, alongside directors Mickey Triest and Aaron Geva. Together, they deliver a bold assertion of female sexual identity. 

Sundance is thrilled to present the first four episodes of this darkly comedic series.
