Documentary. What happens when individuals try to leave Britain's Hasidic Jewish community? This is a struggle between a centuries-old way of living and contemporary Britain.

What happens when individuals try to leave Britain's Hasidic Jewish community? Strictly-orthodox Jews live by 19th-century traditions in a modern world. But there are some who struggle with this way of life. In this documentary, two people reveal what happened to them once they made the decision to leave - a decision that meant letting go of everything they knew. This is a story about sacrifice and tradition, and a clash between two worlds.
Produced and presented by Camila Ruz and Charlotte Pritchard.
