Two young people find love while in hiding during WWII. The boy, now an old man, works as a Shomer, a religious watchman responsible for guarding the souls of the dead before their burial. One night he comes face-to-face with his long lost love when her dead body is wheeled into the morgue where he works. As he is presented with a final chance at redemption, he recalls the brief but intense circumstances of their love affair.


Critic Reviews for The Pin

[A] dreary Canadian drama.

Jun 19, 2014 | Full Review…

Ms. Jaye uses sound, composition and careful patience to create a contemplative mood of memory, loss and magic. With limited resources and the power of storytelling, she has created a small film that feels mainstream and epic.

The first ever Yiddish film made in Canada.

There's a truly wrenching, decades-spanning, war-torn love story trying to escape from this overly restrained fable.
