The play tells the story of Alma, an idependant woman, who runs her own small publishing company.
She brought up her two children alone, and when her daughter decides to become ultra-orthodox and disconnects from Alma, she feels that “religion” has stolen her daughter from her and seeks revenge.
The opportunity comes when she receives a manuscript from Ruth, a young religious woman, exposing some horrifying truths about the ultra orthodox closed community.
She encourages Ruth to publish the book although she knows that within her community such a book would be considered slander and publishing it may bring upon Ruth and her family total banishment and excommunication.
