Like Children

, 2012

Somewhere on the outskirts of an unnamed Shtetl, fate has united Yoni and Sarah. At the tender age of 17, the young couple have been hand-picked by the local matchmaker in order to decide whether or not to marry one another. As their younger siblings play outside and their respective parents awkwardly await the impending decision in the adjoining room, Yoni and Sarah face the biggest choice of their lives. ‘Like Children’ explores the transient nature of childhood and how often we can be instantly thrust into the throes of adulthood without warning. What do we do when we get to the other side?
