The Screen Guide

Archetypal good Jewish girl Shelley, escapes family expectations by falling in love with the leader of one of America’s most active terrorist organizations. Thrust into a world that walks the line between activism and terrorism, Shelley faces alienation from her family, then the imprisonment and violent death of her friends, her husband and ultimately her son. Shattered by this experience, Shelley must, 30 years later, rebuild her own life. But before this, old debts must be paid. She must find a new leader for the Jewish Defense League. Will her decision to give someone else the top job come with all the perils associated with violent extremism?
