Pinkas Goren is a 75-year-old farmer from the village of Rehov in the Beit Shean Valley. One morning he wakes up from a dream about his sister Simcha, who is married to a Muslim and lives in Kurdistan. After his dream and despite his sons’ protests, Pinkas  sets off on a dangerous journey back to the village where he was born, hoping to learn what happened to his sister, whom he has not seen for over 50 years.
