Plot

The film follows a married couple, Leah (Chava Alberstein) and Ya'akov (Alexander Peleg), who live on a kibbutz in the 1970s. Over a period of ten years, all of their attempts to conceive a child have been unsuccessful and their marriage begins to disintegrate as each suffers silently and blames the other. Their difficulties are compounded – and the damaging effects of the lack of privacy in an insular communal environment underscored – when their inability to conceive becomes a matter of public knowledge and gossip among the kibbutz members.
