The film structure, isolated portraits, reflects the way of life in Israeli society. Ties between people from different communities and peripheries hardly exist. This is the cause of clichés and prejudices which we have as a society.
The film investigates the meaning of identity in a country of immigrants like Israel - the search of roots, the tension between tradition and modernity, between past and present, It explores the ties between Israeli and Jewish identity, and the difficulty of ethnic minorities to integrate.
The film opens windows, inviting the spectators to look into the home and culture of each woman, and the five female faces are exposed from the rich mosaic of the Israeli experience.
The faces change, and by the end of each variation, they gain different qualities and meanings.
In the sixth variation 'To Banish The Darkness' the spectator understands the ties between the five women. The women participate in a workshop of educators from different parts of the country who want to know the other and start a dialogue with him. Indeed, despite the disagreements and differences of opinion, despite the dramas and crisis which explode like an steaming lava, the ties continue until the next crisis.
