    Hagit is a mentally handicapped young woman working in a toilet paper factory. Her mother has largely put her life on hold to care for her daughter and as a result she can be a bit over bearing. When Hagit begins to drift into a kind of romance with the boss’s son things become complicated, more so when the factory is scheduled for closing.
