Hanna Mendelssohn, a stubborn eighty-year-old widow, is a proud member of a collective community (kibbutz) she herself helped to found. She believes strongly in the values of social equality and cooperation upon which the kibbutz was created. Her world disintegrates as the privatization of the kibbutz forces her into retirement. After years of devotion and hard work, she finds herself useless. She strives to continue to live her life as she used to, but everytime reality slaps her in the face. When all her hopes are diminished, she realizes that friendship and solidariety still exist and something new can flourish.
