primitive shtetls-and modern society. A world where
atrocities pertaining to poor, dowry-less Jewish girls
take place under the careful guise of "goodhearted aid"
for eligible families. An existence of good and evil and
countless shades of gray in between...
HANNAH. Friday night sees her husband make Kiddush...and then
walk to the concert hall to play Bach to a packed audience. Her
daughter wants nothing more than to join the ranks of high society.
And she, Hannah, is desperately trying to straddle two worlds...
FELIX. Always possessing a more spiritual nature, he discovers
the more sordid side of humanity and of the times through his
job at the newspaper. But then he is presented with the ultimate
challenge of his job, in the form of subtle blackmail...
EMMY. Up until now, her whole world has revolved around the
latest fashions and trends, and pretty, frill-filled dreams of marriage.
When she has a rude awakening, she must choose between falling
into utter despair...and doing something for a higher cause.
- In Rocking Horse, we follow a family pulled between shtetl and
city, tradition and modernity. And as we do, we discover the silent
tragedy of all those who become pawns in the hands of those greedy
for money and power.
