Nurit, a forty year old woman, reaches a point where she can no longer stand her confining life. Leaving behind her husband, she takes her two kids to the big city. In Tel Aviv she finds work in what she does best, driving a bus, and rents an apartment in a shady part of the city. But life as a single mom is not easy and Nurit finds that juggling between the demands of her job and her children is more than she can handle. She hires Mushidi, an illegal immigrant from Ghana, to be a live-in nanny, who instead of rent will cook, and take care of the children. With the help of Mushidi, Nurit discovers new things about herself and redefines her motherhood and femininity.
