Margo (Levana Finklstein) is a young woman saddled with the responsibility of caring for her siblings because of her absent mother and drunken father. With little time to think of her own feelings, she falls in love with a university professor and has her first love affair. Scenes of the Golan Heights are depicted, as are the Wailing Wall, the Mosque of Omar and the Christmas procession of the faithful Catholics. Arabs and Jews live side-by-side in this feature that reflects a hopeful situation for the future of Israel. After doing so much for others, Margo allows herself to experience the feelings of love, although the affair could lead to heartbreak for the young woman and unemployment for the unhappily married college professor.
