Shira, an 18-year-old Hasidic Israeli, is considering a marriage offer arranged through a matchmaker, which is customary in her community. When her older sister unexpectedly dies, leaving a new-born baby, it is expected that Shira's brother-in-law Yochai will seek a new wife. Family tensions emerge over Yochai's possible choices. Both Yochai and Shira are urged to marry by Shira's mother, though both are hesitant despite their mutual attraction. Ultimately, Shira has to examine her own complex feelings in order to come to a decision.
