The first season of miss jerusalem (The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem) entered the top 10 Netflix from seven countries around the world after its premiere at the end of May and remained in this position for a few weeks until this month. The effect of its success has to do with the close link between Jewish stories in fiction and the captivating drama genre. As it happened before with unorthodox Y Shtiselthe platform brings us a new proposal based on the homonymous novel by sarit yishai levy and narrated in the style of Turkish productions.

Set in the early 20th century, the story follows the Armoza family and the relationship they have with Palestine during the rule of the Ottoman Empire under the British mandate. The story is divided into two time lines that happen simultaneously, since the scenes of the present and the past alternate with each other. This is how we meet Gabriel Armoza and his wife, Rosa, who live with his three daughters, Rivka, Rachel and Luna. The latter is the youngest of the group and, due to Gabriel’s favoritism, she is the one who puts her parents’ intra-family relationships and marriage in conflict.
