Upon discovering that her beloved grandfather has passed away, Efi (30) returns to her hometown of Acre. While visiting the home she grew up in, she meets Karen (40) a teacher, wife and mother of two. The two women instantly form a connection and find themselves falling in love with one another. This newfound love keeps Efi in town longer than she expected and pulls her back to her family. Through Karen’s 9 year old daughter Maya, Efi will come to terms with what forced her to flee so many years ago- her Uncle Yossi, a well-known local cop and everyone’s favorite uncle. Her break with Karen occurs when Efi criticizes her for not seeing what her daughter Maya is going through, propelling Effie to finally confront her Uncle Yossi.
