After the death of her husband in the Six Day War (June 5 – 10, 1967), an Israeli woman struggles to forge her new identity in the face of grief,  bereavement and societal expectations. Tamar's friends and family believe she should behave as a proper widow, serving as a living memorial to her slain husband, but she wants to explore new possibilities and live independently. The film premiered in the Cannes Film Festival in May 1969 and was later featured in the Chicago International Film Festival in October 1969. The film was also selected as the Israeli entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 1970 Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
