When Gila, a 65-year-old kibbutznik and long-time divorcee, is minding her grandchildren one evening, she meets up with 70-year-old Amnon, her son-in-law’s widowed father. During the evening, while their children attempt to salvage their marriage, Amnon and Gila make tentative moves towards one another. Gila tries to deal with her guilt at ‘abandoning’ her daughter to the kibbutz’s communal child rearing, at the same time as she faces her fear of falling in love and getting hurt again.
