Inspired by the award-winning play of the same name, this poignant drama centers around Rivka, the only child of Ultra Orthodox Jewish parents from Jerusalem, who begins to secretly explore the secular world. She befriends Dubi, a young man from a kibbutz. When Rivka’s strict father discovers her plan to abandon their community, he arranges to marry her off to a widower with children. Rivka’s reserved mother is caught between her sense of duty to her husband and her desire to see Rivka happy. This timeless story confronts issues of tradition versus modernity, and the question of whether these two generations can reach reconciliation.
