Offering a richly detailed and carefully researched view of Jerusalem at the turn-of-the century, this romantic drama depicts a time when the city was a haven for both Arabs and Jews and tells the story of a barren wife who makes a great sacrifice by allowing her husband to take a second wife while still married to her. It's not that Rebecca does not love her husband Jacob, a prominent Sephardic rabbi. She would do anything to make him happy. Unfortunately, after 15 happily married years, she has not conceived a child. Though Jacob's love, devotion and support has remained unwavering, Rebecca has been chastised by her neighbors and her mother-in-law into believing that she has failed her husband. To this end, she suggests that Jacob marry a young virgin so that he may continue his family line. Jacob is reluctant, but eventually gives in. At first the odd union works out, but in time, Rebecca finds herself becoming jealous of the new bride and this creates considerable turmoil.
