In 1979, Viviane, who is married with three children and is considering divorce, struggles to choose between tradition and inner dreams and desires. Her family attempts to persuade her not break strict Moroccan tradition by going through with her divorce of her husband Eliahou. But Viviane is ready to leave her old life behind to live a new life in modern Israel.
