After 12 years of absence, a filmmaker is returning to Israel in search for answers. What starts as a personal journey, will turn into an intimate portrait of surprisingly different women in a war stricken land. Noga is a high school teenager who is eager to be accepted into the best unit of the Israeli army. Moran is a religious social worker who has chosen as a home town Sderot, which is under the threat of rockets. In this Israeli-Jewish town also lives Hanadi, a young Arab woman from the northern part of the country, fighting for her identity. From north to south, from past to present, the quest for answers creates an intimate portrait of women in a country at war.
