What is the difference between a writer and a housewife? How can you write a novel when you feel suffocated by love? A young woman living in her own Garden of Eden with her boyfriend in Jerusalem has taken a vow not to leave their apartment until she finishes her novel. But her narrative is disrupted by the arrival of her boyfriend’s famous brother. Told in a personal voice-over, we follow the writer as she makes choices between the familiar home and the unknown world outside.
