Based on the true story of the love affair between Pnina Gary, director and actress from Nahalal, and Eli Ben–Zvi, son of Rachel Yanait and Yitzhak Ben-Zvi the second president of Israel, this is an exploration of love and independence. Set in turbulent pre-state Palestine, Eli (Aviv Alush from The Women’s Balcony) and Margalit (Adi Bielski) are torn between their love for each other and where they see their own futures in the Jewish state. In the budding theater world of Tel Aviv and the kibbutzim, Margalit finds her place in the spotlight. Eli is drawn deeper into the armed struggle for Jewish independence from the British.Their love wins, but Israel's harsh reality intervenes.
