Ancient superstition meets one woman’s fight for independence and love among the mountain-dwelling tribes of Morocco. When Zaya secretly gives birth to a child by a non-Jewish Tuareg rider, her Jewish tribe forces her to undergo the “Milk Trial” to see if she is producing milk to nurse a child. Based on a true story set in the 1940’s, The Milk Trial is a sexy and dark tale about the clash of ancient customs with a rapidly modernizing world. Cast - Maayan Keret, Sami Huri, Dan Turgeman and Tomer Russo.
