A Touch Away is an eight-part dramatic series about two families whose lives fatefully intersect in an apartment complex in the Orthodox neighborhood of Bnei Barak in Tel Aviv. The Bermans are a strictly religious (Haredi) family whose daughter Rochele is about to enter into an arranged marriage with a wealthy young bridegroom. However, sparks fly when a newly arrived, thoroughly secular family from Russia and their handsome eldest son Zorik take over a neighboring apartment.
The forbidden love that soon buds between the two young neighbors and the secrets each family must hide, threaten the families’ deeply rooted cultural assumptions and challenge individual family members’ beliefs.
