If your bashert is that soul mate who was always meant for you, what happens after you lose that person? Filmmaker and former rabbi Herb Freed takes us on an intoxicating journey into the deepest dimensions of the heart and spirit on one man’s quest. Dan Sobol and Marion Gladstone meet by chance at a screenwriter’s event in Los Angeles. He’s a rabbi turned director known for his cinematic television commercials; she’s a writer and film editor who is recovering from a tabloid-headline screaming Hollywood divorce. From the moment Marion hears Dan’s voice she knows — and so does he. It’s bashert. Drawing upon his own personal experience, Freed spins a tale unflinching in its examination of life but weaving along the edge of magical realism. From the bright lights of Hollywood to Mexico, Israel, Paris, and the dreamy exhilaration of Jamaica, Bashert is a love story about transcending life loss and the boundaries we mistakenly place on our lives and our hearts.
