Rivka and Malka are two Orthodox Jewish sisters living in one of the most traditional communities in Jerusalem, and both are coming up against conflicts between their faith and their gender. Rivka and Meir have been married for 10 years, but are childless. Despite his real love for his wife, Meir feels he must follow tradition and take another, fertile wife. Meanwhile, Rivka's younger sister, Malka also struggles with the conflict between her desires and the demands of her faith. Malka goes through with an arranged marriage, despite having fallen for a young student, Yakov, who has chosen to leave the community and lives rock as a rock singer. When the realities of her enclosed world become clear to her, she is faced with a choice: to become just another womb, or to face leaving the only community she has ever known.
