Orna is an ordinary woman living a happy life with a husband and three children. But her family becomes financially unstable, and she has to look for a steady job. When she finally gets a job at a real state agency, everything seems to go back to normal. But things turn out the way that she would never have imagined. Her boss appreciates and promotes her, while making inappropriate advances, and it drives her to the point where life at work becomes unbearable. To make things worse, her husband struggles to keep his new restaurant afloat, and Orna becomes the main breadwinner for their three children. When her world is finally shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for her job and a sense of self-worth. Hardworking, talented and ambitious, Orna faces increasing sexual harassment at work, which soon affects her entire life, and she has to make a critical decision not just for her but for her entire family.
