Plot – Yentl is a young and clever Jewish girl who is passionate about learning and lives in a small village in the West part of Poland, at the beginning of the 20th century. The ancient Jewish traditions didn’t allow the women to study, forcing them to care only about the house and the children, according to a strict division in which culture was a men’s principle, while life was a women’s one. However, Yentl rebels again the system and studies the Talmud, supported by her wise and old father.
