One day, she meets and falls in love with 24 year old Eli Ben Zvi from Kibbutz Beit Keshet. She tries to get his attention, hoping he’ll fall for her, but things don’t go so smoothly. He has a girlfriend and is busy with the dramatic events preceding the birth of Israel. Slowly the barriers come down.
