The year is 1981. Rachel Gerlik, a 42-year-old widow and the mother of two beautiful teenage daughters, Esti and Tami, wants to join the founding group of a new religious settlement in the West Bank. The problem is that the acceptance committee won't accept her unless she remarries and proves that she and her daughters can meet the group's religious and ideological standards.
When Tami, her youngest daughter, is accused of seducing some boys from her youth movement, Rachel is forced to weigh her alliances. Only Yossi,a 50-year-old bachelor, and the new man in Rachel's life, can show Rachel that living as an outcast is not as bad as it seems.
