In the Israeli Arab village of Tamra, in Galilee, eight widows challenge social conventions and establish the Azka Pickle Cooperative, seeking financial independence for themselves and their children. With little formal education and no work experience outside of the home, the women face endless hurdles in expanding their business start-up–while their personal lives reflect the joys and sadness of family weddings, bereavement, and loneliness.
“There are those who venture into a start-up business to make some extra cash, and then there are those who do so to survive… Pickles, Inc. evokes an I-can-do-anything mentality after watching the unlikely entrepreneurs succeed.”
