After years of living in Jaffa, Efi comes back to Acre, her hometown, following the death of her grandfather. There she meets Karen, a teacher who is married with two children. An unexpected but deep romance begins between the women, keeping Efi in Acco, prompting her to rethink her plans and pulling her to revisit her past.
This extended stay in the neighborhood of her youth means that Efi must confront many of the buried secrets of her childhood and the tribal nature of the community that nurtured — and disrupted — her early years. When the exposure of those secrets leads directly to Karen's family, difficult decisions must be made.
