Fixated on romantic fantasies, Hagit (Moran Rosenblatt), a kindly and strong-willed young woman with a mild mental disability, embarks on a relationship- much to the concern of her protective mother (Asi Levi). When Hagit develops a relationship with the factory owner's son (Roy Assaf), she begins sneaking out of the house and away from her mother's protective gaze.
