Gal a 12 year old is the village mailman in the summer of 1982 and infatuated with a beautiful, but sickly 19 year old Chaya who corresponds with soldiers in the Lebanon War. Out of jealousy Gal destroys a photo sent to her by a soldier. When Chaya's illness worsens, Gal goes to Lebanon to photograph the soldier himself. A sensitive and touching coming of age story.
