Benny (Binyamina), an only child, lives with her father Joshua in East Jerusalem’s Silwan settlement. When a red, kosher calf is born, her father takes this as a sign to begin construction on the Third Temple. Benny is given the task of looking after the cow that has been given fateful significance. When Benny falls in love with Yael who is doing her one-year national service, her close bond with her father starts to unravel. As tensions flare, Benny finds herself desperately trying to create a future for Yael and herself.
