The intolerable ease with which people can ruin a person’s life with a hasty accusation, as well as the dilemmas this creates. Ramat Hasharon, 1992: A well-known kindergarten teacher is accused of severely abusing the children in her care. The accusers: the kindergarten teacher’s assistant and a one of the parents. An ambitious police officer obtains incriminating testimony from the parents. The kindergarten teacher is thrown into a detention cell with prostitutes and drug addicts. Twenty-four years later, every morning the kindergarten teacher leaves her home, which is next door to the kindergarten that is no longer under her supervision, wandering the streets with no hope.
