Yaron Shani


Rashi has been a police officer for 15 years, a guardian of others and the law, always
in control. Despite his constant exposure to violence, he dearly hopes to have a child with
his wife Avigail. Then Rashi’s world is shaken. He is accused of sexual assault and suspended from the force due to his conduct during a standard police-check on some privileged boys.
While defending his innocence at work, he finds himself clashing at home with his
Lolita-like step-daughter who is as assertive and stubborn as he is, defying his authority.
His wife becomes gradually distant. Helpless and chained by his need to dominate,
he becomes a danger to himself and his beloved ones.

Chained is the second film of the Love Trilogy (after Stripped, presented last year in Venice / Orizzonti and Reborn that will be completed during 2019)
