With her husband struggling to keep his new restaurant open, Orna, a mother of three, returns to the workplace to help support her family.  She gets a job working for Benny (Menashe Noy, Gett: the Trial of Viviane Amsalem), a former army superior, who is now a successful real estate developer.  Orna embraces her new position and, with Benny as her mentor, rapidly rises through the ranks.  The price of her success, however, is the struggle to balance work demands with her home life – until a greater struggle supersedes:  how to deal with escalating sexual harassment from her boss.
