The Book of Ruth follows a family’s visit at the grandmother’s house on the night of the Seder. Later that night the granddaughter, Lizzy, confronts her grandma, Ruth, about something she’d suspected for years.
The Book of Ruth is a story that will engage people in conversation, about memory, symbolism and even the downside of fame. The fact that the script was accepted to many festivals and competitions is a testament to the fact that people are interested in the story before it even reached production.
This story centers around women and was written by a woman. Ideally, we'd love to have a female lead crew and contribute (even if only somewhat) in helping to close the gender gap in the film industry.
