8 Episodes

New Episode Every Thursday Exclusively on ChaiFlicks! | From the producers of Fauda and Shtisel, FIRE DANCE is the first television series from acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Rama Burshtein-Shai (The Wedding Plan, Fill The Void) – the coming-of-age story of a young troubled woman in a tight knit ultra-orthodox religious sect.

Feigi, a young woman from a broken home, attaches her future happiness to Nathan (top Israeli actor Yehuda Levi) — the 35-year-old married son of the leader of the ultra-orthodox community in which they both live. Feigi's feelings and her longing for a relationship with Nathan can never materialize. It is this delicate tension, between passion and fulfillment, set on the backdrop of a conservative, devout community – in which Fire Dance exists.

"There are few Israeli TV shows I've been waiting to come to U.S. audiences more than "Fire Dance." I can't wait to be sucked into its world once more." - Lior Zaltzman, Kveller
