A Moabite priestess renounces her Gods for the God of Israel. Since she is a foreigner, her dedication is not readily accepted by the villagers. All the spectacle of heathen idolatry and human sacrifice. One of the Bible's timeless love stories.

How to make slut-shaming work for you. At a time when the lives of women, foreigners, and poor people were not great (like they are now, huh?), two smart women work together to make their own happy ending. The script is the usual stilted, slow-paced Bible stuff. But overall, the writers and actors do a good job fleshing out a bare-bones story. Props for making this film at a tense time in Israeli/Palestinian relations.
