Noa is a Lebanon War widow who for fifteen years has raised her two sons on her own and runs her late husband’s publishing house. She meets Amnon, an ex-air force pilot who works for the Society for the Protection of Nature, falls in love with him, and for the first time since her husband’s death, tries living a life of couplehood.

Her children try to break up the affair. With ruthless zealotry in their fight for their father’s memory and their territory, they devise a libel that almost destroys Noa’s relationship with Amnon. Noa is torn between her love for her sons and her new love, and she is finally forced to make choice.
