Eliyokim loves the daughter of the Rabbi

but cannot get her as a Shidduch due to social differences.

Today, haredi as well as national religious society works like this:

To a handicaped, the matchmaker (Shadchan, Shadchanit) is suggesting another handicaped, to a Rabbi's daughter a Rabbi's son, to a Baal Teshuva another Baal Teshuva. "Love" does not play a role in a Shidduch but rather social matters as well as reputation.

The short movie scene is in Hebrew and Yiddish with English subtitles !
