The Maoz Chaim children's house. 1943. A gunshot echoes, followed by silence. 11-year-old Dvora'le is orphaned. Her mother is found, shot in the head. Journeying into the past, the filmmaker returns to the childhood of his mother, author Dvora Omer, whose book touched the lives of generations of young people. Who hasn’t read "My Father’s Eldest Son", "Sara, Heroine of Nili", "Love unto Death", and so many more? The beloved children’s author is revealed as a mother with "rain in her eyes", as she described herself – a mother whose tortuous life story left its mark on her writing and her relationships with her family.
