From acclaimed filmmaker Rama Burshtein's comes her first television series "Fire Dance" - the coming-of-age story of a young, troubled woman, in a tight-knit ultra-orthodox religious sect.  

Faigie 18, grew up in a broken home, without a father figure, attaching her future happiness to Nathan, the 35-year-old married son of the leader of the ultra-orthodox community in which they both live. Nathan is also the owner of a workshop which employs seamstresses, who live with mental illness, run by Faigie's mother, Rayzee.

Following a failed suicide attempt, Faigie becomes part of Nathan's household,  helping to run the home while Nathan's wife, Yocheved, is pregnant with their first child, after 18 years of marriage. The bond between the two families tightens as Faigie grows dangerously close to Nathan. Faigie's feelings and her longing for a relationship with Nathan can never materialize-  governed by the rules dictated by their religious beliefs-  which could not allow such passion to be consummated.

It is this delicate tension, between passion and fulfillment,  set on the backdrop of a conservative, devout community – in which "Fire Dance" exists .
