The Story Of Unorthodox:

Several streaming services show us the reality of today, but how many can tell us precisely about the mindset of people who are around us. Unorthodox is a 4 episode series that is based on a memoir of the same name.

It is about a Jewish woman who flew away from her over orthodox society to break the chains and earn a better living. This series shows all the orthodox things that the community consisted of.
