    “In spite of her husband’s repeated attempts at involving her in the village life and starting a family with her, Hagar Erlich feels alienated. She is unemployed and childless and is eventually forced to watch over Yiftach, the ten year old son of the neighbor. But Hagar soon comes to appreciate this gentle, vulnerable boy who touches her soul. In spite of the boy’s hesitations, she convinces him to follow her into the ruins of an enchanted, abandoned village – her secret hideaway.”
