Etty and Tzion live a happy peaceful life in their small Jerusalem community.  During the bar mitzvah of their grandson, the women’s balcony of their synagogue collapses and the synagogue is destroyed.

Then a young, charismatic, zealous rabbi comes into their lives and he promises that all their problems will be solved.
