Every afternoon, a very ordinary radio, placed in a living room, becomes the center of Rivka Solarsky’s life. All the broadcasters of all the radio stations know her, and that’s because ever since she got over her initial phobia, she hasn’t stopped calling them. She solves their riddles, recites limericks, and wins prizes. Rivka may not have a proper job, but she hopes her expertise in radio quizzes can earn her a decent living. This is a true-life story, set against the backdrop of Israeli culture in the prosperous 1990s.
